    How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

    Because each person has different issues and goals for counseling, it will be different depending on the individual. Working with a variety of modalities such as EMDR, Rapid Resolution, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs. 

    How long will it take?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time counseling can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.

    I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

    I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your success. There’s a saying that therapy is about what happens outside of sessions. You will learn a great deal in your appointments. The power comes when you apply learnings in your daily life. 

    Why don’t you take insurance? 

    I find that sometimes people go through arduous periods in their life and seek support but don’t meet the criteria for a formal diagnosis. Furthermore, there may have been a time when an individual briefly met the criteria for a mental disorder but generally does not meet the criteria. However, to be able to use your insurance, your therapist has to provide a formal diagnosis. Moreover, insurance companies may request to view therapy records. The diagnosis would stay in your insurance records your entire life without the possibility to amend or change it, even after the circumstances in your life have improved. Depending upon your diagnosis and circumstances, this could impact your ability to obtain life insurance or other important coverage. Self-pay provides and allows the provision of services without the restrictions of insurance regulations, insurance adjusters, or their third-party adjusting agencies. Client confidentiality and discretion are of the utmost importance to me.

    Do you work with trauma?

    Yes, whether it is something from your past or something recent, I work from a trauma informed perspective using tools like RRT and EMDR to support you with resolving and reprocessing tramatic events and memories. I’m skilled in working with sexual assault and domestic violence, as well as childhood trauma.
