How many sessions will I need?
Duration of therapy will depend on each person's needs. The number of sessions will vary from client to client based on goals and circumstances bringing you to therapy.
Therapy is not a quick-fix. Our core beliefs, behaviors, and relationship patterns have been with us for years, often since birth, so changing them will take time and patience, in the same way that our bodies don't change immediately after we start exercising or eating differently.
How long are sessions?
Individual sessions are 50-minutes long. Group sessions are 80-minutes.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not work directly with insurance companies, but I can provide a monthly statement of services that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. I encourage you to reach out to your insurance company to understand your out-of-network behavioral health benefits.
What are the frequency of sessions?
Sessions are typically once a week, especially at the beginning of therapy. Clients in crisis may need to meet twice a week; other clients may prefer to meet biweekly. The frequency of sessions is based on each situation and can be discussed and adjusted as needed.
What is a typical session like?
I view sessions as your space, your time, your place to be who you are, in whatever state you are that day. I act as a sounding board - listening, taking in, processing what you bring to the session. Together, we explore what is coming up and how it is impacting the various parts of your life. Clients are often surprised by new insights and emotions that surface as they hear themselves speak.
Are sessions confidential?
Yes, sessions are confidential. The only instances when I would need to disclose information is if there was a threat of harm to you, someone else or to the community; by a court order; or, if you request I release information in writing (i.e. to a physician or family member).
