What to Expect/FAQ
How does it work?
Because each person has different issues and goals for counseling, it will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs. I primarily specialize in treating anxiety and post-traumatic stress/trauma.
How long will it take?
Each person is different in terms of how long they will need to attend therapy. Some folks need a few sessions and others may need therapy for a year or longer. It really depends on a lot of factors.
After a few sessions, we may be able to gauge the length of time/commitment that will be necessary to find healing. Though we will start with weekly sessions for at least a few months, we may find that the frequency can be reduced to biweekly or even monthly sessions.
It may be possible for you to expedite your therapy process through an EMDR Intensive and avoid spending months/years in therapy. Research is showing that intensives can be a powerful and healing experience and may facilitate a quicker healing process than regular weekly therapy.
How do I meet with you?
I hold office hours Mondays (9-2), Wednesdays (9-2) and Fridays (8-5) for individual/hourly therapy. Please inquire with me directly about specific appointment requests.
