HERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THERAPY AND MY SERVICES:

IS THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME?
Those who engage in therapy are taking their lives into their hands and making changes for themselves. This can mean, working through past experiences so they no longer impact your day to day, or moving through blocks that hold you back from your goals. In turn, you will be able to create a creater sense of self-connection. This leads to greater confidence, fulfillment and saily effectiveness.

If you are stuck in a cycle of the same actions, thoughts and feelings, I can help. Therapy can support you in moving towards the direction you want. You know there is another path out there.

Everyone hits challenges in life, we often feel that reaching out for help makes us weak. When we reach out for help we have the opportunity to grow past what we knew was possible for us. We create empowerment for ourselves and find new skills that make life more of what we want it to be.

HOW DOES THERAPY HELP AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Therapy is an individual process based on individual needs. Therapy can support in working through mood disorders, alleviate anxiety and depression and process trauma. It is also used to help people increase their satisfaction in life and within themselves, work through old narratives that we too often tell ourselves “I’m not good enough”, “I have to carry everyone else’s struggles” and “I’m alone or feel unseen” to name a few.

We also offer Brainspotting to support in working through blocks in your life that are impacting your performance. When we work through these blocks you are able to have increased confidence in yourself, increased creativity and innovation.

DO YOU PRESCRIBE MEDICATION?

We do not prescribe medication. If you have a prescriber already we are happy to work as a team with this person to ensure that you have a treatment team that collaborates and you get the best care possible.

DO YOU OFFER A FREE CONSULTATION?

We offer a free 15 minute consultation over the phone to ensure that we are a good fit for you. If you decide that we are not we will give you additional resources to reach out to.

WHAT IS THE COST? CAN I USE MY INSURANCE?

WHAT DO WE DO DURING A SESSION?
