Frequent Asked Questions
Do you offer a free consultation?
No. Our first session will allow for us to better get to know each other and for me to assess how can I help you.
When will I start to feel better?
The amount of time varies and is based on many factors- frequency of sessions, readiness to change, therapist-client fit, severity of trauma and mental health symptoms, just to name a few. While most of my clients see me for 1-3 years, you should start to notice some shifts after ~5 sessions.
Do you offer sliding scale rates?
Yes, I do. While I don't verify income, I offer a 20% fee reduction for those who are unable to afford the full fee. The fee reduction is meant to provide access based on financial need. It is not to provide general discounts.
How long does each therapy session take?
Each session is between 50-55 minutes. This allows time to ease into the session, "do the work," and re-center so that you can continue on with your day.
Will I be given homework?
My clients that report the most success in therapy do homework. My homework assignments are always an invitation, but they are worthwhile as they are relevant to your presenting issues. Additionally, there is only so much that can happen if I see you a handful of times per month. It is going to be imperative that you invest in yourself outside of our sessions.
