It is normal and encouraged for individuals to ask a lot of questions when choosing to work with a therapist. Below, I have compiled a list of the most frequent questions that clients or potential clients ask about my services and approach; I have tried to answer each as clearly as possible. If you find that you still have a question that isn't covered here, please get in touch with me.
DO I EVEN NEED THERAPY?
WHAT IS A MARRIAGE & FAMILY THERAPIST?
WHAT IS ART THERAPY?
WHAT IS EMDR?
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES? WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
DO YOU HAVE A SLIDING SCALE?
In cases of financial hardship, and depending on the limited-availability of such slots, I may offer a partially-reduced (or, “sliding scale”) fee for therapeutic services. This is on a case-by-case basis and is done with the intention of providing/continuing services with those in serious need.
HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH YOU?
Call me! Or if you’d rather email me, that is fine too. You can go to the "contact page" on this website to do either. If you have a sense that you want to move forward, let's schedule a phone consultation so that we can chat and see if we would be a good fit for one another. Following your consultation call, and if we schedule a session together, then I will send you an email with a link to set up your online client portal, which will ask for your personal, emergency contact, and billing information before your first appointment.
