  • What is therapy?
    "Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy or usually just "therapy," is a form of treatment aimed at relieving emotional distress and mental health problems. Provided by any of a variety of trained professionals—psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, or licensed counselors—it involves examining and gaining insight into life choices and difficulties faced by individuals, couples, or families. Therapy sessions refer to structured meetings between a licensed provider and a client with a goal of improving some aspect of their life. Psychotherapy encompasses many types of treatment and is practiced by a range of clinicians using a variety of strategies. The critical aspect is that the client or patient works collaboratively with the therapist and can identify improvement and positive change over time." -Psychology Today
  • Should I go to therapy?
    Most people can benefit from therapy regardless of specific challenges. The American Psychological Association suggests considering therapy when something causes distress and interferes with some part of life, particularly when: Thinking about or coping with the issue takes up at least an hour each day The issue causes embarrassment or makes you want to avoid others The issue has caused your quality of life to decrease The issue has negatively affected school, work, or relationships You’ve made changes in your life or developed habits to cope with the issue
  • How often do we meet and how many sessions will I need?
    The answer to this question depends upon a few factors: The client's needs The client's financial budget The client's goals The types of issues and/or concerns the client is experiencing The severity of said concerns The support network and resources of the client The type of treatment being sought (EMDR, CBT, DBT, etc.) The readiness of the client Many clients notice improvements within the first few sessions. Most of my clients initially meet with me weekly, and then transition to bi-weekly and so on. Clients are free to discontinue services at any time.
  • What is the first session like?
    Generally, during the first session, the client and I get to know each other a little bit to get an idea of how we will proceed. I typically gather some information about you to get a better picture of you and your life. Some examples of questions that I may ask are: What brings you to therapy at this time? For how long has _____________ been going on? What is your family dynamic like? What are some thing you'd like to develop or improve? I also encourage clients to ask me any questions that they may have.
  • What are the benefits of online counseling?
