When should I consider therapy?
If the problems you experience begin to interfere with your ability to live a meaningful life, carry out daily activities, and engage in satisfying relationships.
Shouldn’t I solve my own problems?
Yes. As your therapist, I will not solve your problems for you. I will facilitate a process that enables you to do just that.
How can I gain the most from my therapy?
Put yourself out there. Be as open and honest as you can. Take any skills you learn in session and use them in your world outside the therapy room.
What do you mean by trauma-informed?
That means I collaborate with my client to foster empowerment, choice, trustworthiness, and safety.
How long should I be in therapy?
The answer to this question depends on your specific needs and wants. Is the problem you’re facing something that has just come up and seems to be a “situational” problem? Or is this something you’ve been struggling with for a while, perhaps since you can remember? These are things we will consider when determining your treatment plan.
When will I feel better?
The answer to this varies. Sometimes negative feelings are reduced as a result of talking and engaging with them. Other times negative feelings give meaning to our lives and we feel better by continuing to live despite them.
Do you keep everything confidential?
I need written consent from you to share any information with anyone about your treatment. There are three exceptions to this: you are at risk of harm to yourself, you are at risk of harm to somebody else, or you are abusing a child or a vulnerable adult.
Do you have other locations?
