Frequently Asked Questions

You Ask - I Answer

What can I expect a session to be like?

The first few sessions gives us a chance to get to each other.  The initial paperwork is reviewed and I will ask questions about your history and goals.  You can ask questions at any point.  After 2-3 sessions, we will complete a treatment plan together to ensure that we are on the same page.  Other sessions will be geared towards meeting your goals.

How long does treatment last?

It depends on the severity of your issues, your goals, client motivation and participation.  I recommend weekly sessions, and as progress is made they can be spaced out bi-weekly, then monthly.

Will my private information be shared with others?

The information that you share is confidental, but there are exceptions.  These are reportable by a therapist:  Intent to harm yourself or others, known or suspected child/elder abuse, court order, or mandate of State and/or Federal law.
