How long will I attend therapy? The duration of treatment varies and depends on what you are looking to gain from therapy, and how significant the problems are that are causing your distress. Together we will discuss a treatment plan and come up with specific goals to help us evaluate your progress. Once you reach your goals we will know it is time to end your therapy sessions.
What is the cost of therapy? I accept some health insurance plans. You will need to check with your insurance carrier to determine if I am a contracted provider. If so, in most cases you will be responsible for a co-pay. If you do not have insurance that will cover the sessions, we will discuss a fee when you call to make the initial appointment.
How will therapy benefit me? In a safe, supportive, and confidential environment the process of therapy offers an opportunity for self-examination. During your sessions, my role is to help you access feelings and thoughts that are standing in the way of improving your life and relationships. As a therapist, I view myself as a guide to help you overcome your challenges and reach your goals. Often an individual or couple begins the therapy process with a specific problem to overcome, such as divorce, depression or stress. Other times it is an overall sense of unhappiness or discontent that prompts one to seek therapy; however, the reason for their feelings or symptoms is unclear. In either case having a therapist listen, support and guide you toward your own understanding of your problems will help create solutions ultimately lead to self-improvement which is the main objective of therapy.
