Frequently asked questions
How do I know if I need a therapist?
People seek individual treatment for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. If you are considering any of these please contact me for a consultation.
I'm new to therapy, what should I expect?
You can expect to be welcomed as you are, challenged and transformed. The challenge will come from identifying negative patterns and unlearning ways of thinking that have consistently led to negative behaviors and unhappiness. This will not be an easy process, but it will be rewarding as you begin to achieve your goals. I am committed to supporting you throughout this journey.
What is a Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT)?
Marriage and Family Therapists are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems and licensed to independently diagnose and treat mental health and substance abuse problems. MFTs focus on understanding their client’s symptoms and interactional patterns within their existing environment and treat their clients from a relationship perspective.
Do you accept insurance?
While I do not accept insurance directly, I'm happy to provide you with a superbill (special receipt) to facilitate you getting reimbursed by your insurance company. I also accept HSA and FSA payments.
Do you offer a sliding fee scale?
Everyone should have access to mental health treatment. I offer a few reduced-fee slots for clients experiencing economic hardship. Please reach out for more information.
