1. How long will this take/When will I feel better?
Therapy is an investment in yourself and part of the therapy process often uncovers past pain and it is common that part of this process is uncomfortable. My job is to support you so that you are not alone while going through some of this difficult discovery. There is no timeline for therapy, we will work together until you feel you have reached your goals.
2. How often do I need to come?
While you can decide how often you want to come as well as when you want to end therapy, therapy is most effective when people come for weekly sessions.
3. How much will therapy cost? My standard fee is $130/hr. In some situations I will negotiate a sliding scale fee when necessary. I do not accept insurance, but do accept Visa, Mastercard, Checks, and Cash. I’ll sometimes negotiate a sliding scale rate and that I do accept SuperBill.
4. Do you accept insurance?
Yes, I do.
5. Do you work with children?
I do not work with children, I can refer to other qualified therapists who do work with children.
6. When do I know it’s time to come see a therapist? If you’ve tried everything in the past and still feel “stuck”, then that is usually a good sign that it is time to see a therapist.
7. Why should I come talk to you instead of talking to a friend?
A therapist is trained to be objective and to help you grow and heal whereas a friend, who is emotionally involved, usually has some biases and might not always give you objective advice that will help you move forward in your life.
