Frequently Asked Questions


How does therapy work?

Therapy helps by providing a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore and work through various personal challenges. Whether it's trauma, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, or navigating life transitions, therapy allows for a deeper understanding of oneself and how they relate to others. By utilizing empathic listening and a relational perspective, the therapist can help identify patterns and triggers that contribute to difficulties while supporting the development of coping strategies and tools to improve mental wellness.

Through this process, clients can gain insight into their own stories and identities, empowering them to make positive changes and achieve the life they desire. Therapy is a collaborative journey, where both the therapist and the client work together to overcome obstacles and foster personal growth. Ultimately, therapy offers the opportunity for individuals to heal, grow, and improve their overall well-being and quality of life.

15 Minute Consultation

During the consultation, you can expect to share a brief summary of why you are seeking therapy and ask any questions you may have about the therapeutic process. The call is also a chance for you to get a sense of my personality and therapeutic style, and how comfortable you feel talking to me. It's essential to establish a good fit between therapist and client for effective therapy.

If, during the call, I feel that I may not be the best fit for you, I will offer an appropriate referral to another therapist who I believe could better address your specific concerns.

Why don't you take insurance?

As a private pay therapist, my priority is to provide you with the highest quality of care, offering flexibility and greater confidentiality. Unlike insurance, which may compromise privacy through sharing diagnoses and treatment notes, I can focus on your unique needs and goals. Insurance companies often cover therapy for specific mental health conditions like depression or anxiety, but it may limit coverage for personal growth seekers without a formal diagnosis.
