Frequently Asked Questions

Seeking out therapy is an individual choice.  Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in understanding themselves, to enhance self-awareness, and work toward incorporating consistent change in their lives.


The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you have learned.  Some benefits include:

  • Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals, and your values

  • Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones

  • Developing new skills for improving your relationships

  • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy

  • Improving communications and listening skills

  • Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence

  • Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures


Every session is unique and caters to each individual and their specific goals. Therapy can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue, or longer-term, addressing more complex issues or ongoing personal growth. For therapy to be most effective, you must be an active participant, both during and between the sessions.  Some expectations out of therapy:

  • Compassion, respect and understanding from beginning to end of our journey

  • Effective strategies to implement for positive change in your life

  • Evidenced based techniques along with practical guidance

  • Perspectives to illuminate persistent patterns and negative feelings

The law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and his/her clinician.  Upon completion of the intake documentation and terms of services, NO information is disclosed without your prior written permission.  PLEASE NOTE: there are some exceptions required by law to this rule.  Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. I am required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.

  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person, I am required to notify the police.  This is called “duty to warn.”

  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself and has a plan, I will make every effort to work with you to ensure your safety.  However, if the client is not cooperative, I will need to take additional steps to ensure the safety of the client.
