Frequently Asked Questions
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a relationship entered into by a trained psychotherapist and a patient for the purpose of helping the patient either with the symptoms of mental illness or to achieve desired changes in their life.
Is therapy worth paying for?
Therapy is a financial commitment. It’s an investment in yourself and your ability to become aware of self-sabotaging patterns. You will learn new ways of thinking which will ultimately dramatically effect behavior. The ability to think and behave more effectively – can profoundly and positively impact your future relationships, your work, your health, and even your finances. If you’re like most of the individuals I’ve worked with, you’ve likely already invested a lot of time and energy and money into your education, your career, your home, and your physical health. I truly believe that investing in therapy as an act of self-care can be a continued investment in your overall well being and success in life.
How will I know if you are the right therapist for me?
Choosing a therapist isn’t always easy. Therapy is only as effective as the relationship between therapist and client. The best way to know if you’re a good fit is to book a session and have a chat. Ask yourself: “Can I see myself feeling safe and comfortable with this person? Does it seem like they *get* me ?” You can also ask yourself this question during and after an initial phone consult before you book that first session.
How long is a therapy session?
Initial intake sessions are 90 minutes. Individual Therapy sessions are 55 minutes in length. Occasionally, clients will book a double session of 100 minutes if they are experiencing a crisis or acute stress in their lives that particular week.

Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance. Private pay only. I operate as an “out of network” provider. I can provide you with an invoice to submit to your insurance carrier, as they may be able to reimburse you up to full payment. Give your carrier a call about your out of network benefits prior to our session regarding your specific plan.
How early do I need to arrive?
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to ensure our sessions being promptly.
What's the deal if I am running late?
Please arrive on time. Once we’ve launched we cannot return to collect you. If you do not call or are more than 10 minutes late you will be considered a no show. Sorry!
