Frequently Asked Questions
Therapy is a process of change, moving from what has not been working to a place of what does work. As your therapist I help you explore and resolve unhealthy patterns of behaviors and interactions, which have leave you lost. Our therapeutic relationship, which is a different relationship than those you may have experienced with loved ones, is built on safety. Safety for you to be your whole self. To express and explore those vulnerable parts that you are afraid to show to others and keep you stuck. These parts that are less flattering and maybe even scary. This very process of self revealing and trust building is what promotes healing. At the end of your journey is the sense of calm and strength that you have been seeking.
First off I know how hard it is to call up a therapist and talk about what is causing you pain, so I applaud you for taking this first step.
Second, getting started is incredibly easy. As an online therapist everything is done online. You start by scheduling a 90 minute intake. This can be done by going here. This is the time where we get to know each other. I gather a detailed history and ask you about your goals. You get to also ask me anything so you feel comfortable.
If we determine that it would be a good fit we schedule our first session and I send you the opening paperwork via secure email. Then we conduct each session online using a secure and hipaa complaint server called zoom.
