  • What is Therapy?
    Psychotherapy (sometimes called talk therapy) refers to a variety of treatments that aim to help a person identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Through your relationship with your therapist, you’ll work to identify and understand how these stressors are impacting your life, plus develop strategies to manage or eliminate the symptoms.
  • How long will I be in Therapy?
    Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy. Some clients have a very specific problem that can be worked through in a set course of sessions. For others, therapy may be treating a more complex set of problems or an in-depth issue that may require a longer commitment on the client's part to achieve results. Some find that therapy is an ongoing learning process that helps them maintain a better sense of self-awareness and support to help them achieve their life goals. I encourage you not to put a timeline on your healing.
  • Do you take health insurance?
    I ONLY take Aetna health insurance. For all other insurances, I can provide a SuperBill. (receipt for service)
  • What can I expect in a first session?
    The first session is called an intake session. In your first session, we will review your paperwork and inform you about your client rights and responsibilities. Your therapist will ask you many questions during your first session because they want to make sure they understand your goals, concerns, day-to- day functioning, and your history. The first 1-3 sessions are more question heavy because your therapist really wants to get a sense of who you are and how your concerns are impacting you. Your therapist will also want to collaborate with you to identify your treatment goals.
