In therapy, I won't tell you what to do, but I will help you find and make decisions for yourself. Therapy is a joint effort, and progress can vary depending on a number of factors. You will have discussions about personal issues which may uncover uncomfortable emotions like anger, guilt, or sadness, but the benefits of therapy can far outweigh any discomfort encountered during the process. You may experience reduced feelings of emotional distress, improved relationships, and specific problem solving. I can't guarantee these benefits, of course, but it is my desire to help you attain your personal goals.
Appointments are typically scheduled on a weekly basis and are usually 50 or 80 minutes long. Longer, more frequent, or fewer sessions are an option if we determine that to be appropriate.
Therapy is tailored to each individual, and the number of sessions you attend depends on your personal needs. In our first session, we will identify goals, and then evaluate progress throughout treatment. Once you reach your goals, we will discuss your decision to continue or end treatment. Some wish to continue to explore other issues, further personal growth, or continue to strengthen relationships. Others find therapy useful as an additional support and resource in their life. You can decide what works for you.
Growth and change are difficult for everyone, and you won’t be a new person overnight. You may see some immediate changes in your response to daily stressors, and eventually see long-term patterns in growth. For example, you may notice an improvement in your overall mood, start feeling more connected to family and friends, or notice you’re not stressed by an event that might have overwhelmed you in the past. Evaluating your progress will be an ongoing part of therapy.
I do not accept insurance, but I can supply you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if your plan covers out-of-network providers. Please note that not all insurance companies reimburse for out-of-network mental health services.
