  • Why should I talk to a therapist?
    Going to therapy can be a life changing experience. Therapy can be beneficial if you have a specific problem that you are dealing with, if you are struggling with changing patterns in your life or if you are just feeling "down" and aren't sure why. A therapist can offer unconditional support, education, understanding and resources for you. Therapy is often transformative and helps you establish healthier coping skills, better insight, direction and clarity in your life. Talking to a therapist is very different then talking to a friend or family member. Friends and family members, because they know you and already have a relationship with you, may not be able to offer non-judgmental, unbiased support like a therapist would.
  • Are you going to tell me that I need to stop drinking and/or using drugs?
    My philosophy is that drinking/drug use is a symptom of a bigger issue. If you are not willing, ready or able to stop, that is ok! We will work from where you are - provided that after doing an evaluation, I feel that I am able to help you. My therapy services include harm reduction work and relapse prevention with all of my clients. Though I feel there are benefits to 12-step involvement in conjunction with treatment, I do not require that you attend meetings or do anything you aren't comfortable with. I will work with all clients regardless of how they choose to go about their recovery and will offer education, information and support throughout the process.

  • What happens in a therapy session?
    Many people are cautious about starting therapy because they don't know what to expect or they are scared to discuss things that they have never discussed before. This is completely normal. It's very simple - we are having conversations to address the issues with which you are struggling. Our focus is on your goals and therapy is always a collaborative process. It is a safe and casual environment where you can talk about whatever is on your mind. Typically after a session or two, I find that clients tend to feel more comfortable as we get to know one another and the conversation will just flow.
  • How long will I be in therapy?
    Therapy is completely voluntary - which means that since you have decided to come in, you can come as long as necessary to meet your goals. Some find that coming in for 3-6 months is enough time to address their concerns and others end up coming in for therapy for longer periods of time.
  • Can my family member find out I'm in therapy?
    All services are confidential from the minute that you contact me. Therapy is covered by HIPAA regulations in the same way as any other medical service. I am not permitted to disclose any information about you to anyone unless you provide your written permission for me to do so. There are a few exceptions to this which are discussed the first time we meet.
  • Does my insurance cover my therapy sessions?
    ​Most insurances cover outpatient psychotherapy in part or in full. You can contact your insurance company to ask this question and to inquire about your deductible and co-insurance amounts. I am an out-of-network provider, so please ask your insurance company about your OUT OF NETWORK benefits. Depending on your benefits, you may be entitled to some reimbursement of fees paid for therapy. However, I cannot guarantee what they will/will not reimburse.
  • Do you offer in-person or online therapy?
    At this time, I am offering both in-person and online therapy.
  • How do I get started?
    It's really easy to get started. First, I'd like to schedule a time to speak with you on the phone. This helps me find out what you're looking for and whether I feel I'm a good "fit". It also allows you to ask me any questions you have to see if you feel I'm a good "fit" for you. You can schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation with me right on my website. Once we speak, if you decide you'd like to move forward, we will talk about scheduling your first visit.
  • Do you prescribe medication?
    I am not licensed to prescribe medication. If you are interested in medication, please contact a psychiatrist or APN to schedule a medication evaluation.
  • What types of payment are accepted?
    You may make payments in the form of cash, check or credit card.
