Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact me if you have any other questions!

Will I be comfortable doing teletherapy?

Currently, I am only offering therapy sessions. In unprecedented times like these, we need to be flexible and resilient. Although they might have felt uncomfortable meeting on a screen for therapy at first, my clients typically make the transition to teletherapy quickly and continue and grow and improve just as they would have during in-person therapy. Some even find it more convenient than driving to my office for weekly appointments./p>

How long will therapy take?

Each person’s circumstances are unique. The length of time it will take for you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.

Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then.
