What should I expect from our first session?

The first session is typically a meet and greet type of session where we get acquainted and discuss elements of confidentiality, the therapeutic alliance and your commitment to the process. This initial meeting also provides a perfect opportunity for me to assess what your needs are in order to come up with an effective treatment plan and timeline.

How long are the sessions and how frequently do I attend?

I typically see clients on a weekly basis initially, in order to build momentum and establish a solid work alliance. Sessions are anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes in length.
That being said, together we can explore what the best approach is for you as we consider your scheduling needs.

How long will I be attending therapy sessions?

Treatment duration is determined on an individual needs basis and is dependent on several factors such as, your level of commitment to the process, the nature of the challenges or issues you wish to work on and finally, your own personal treatment goals.

Do you work with children?

I do work with children; however, I only see young clients who are willing participants.

Do you use hypnosis with all of your clients?

No. There is a process involved in determining whether or not you are a good candidate of for hypnosis/hypnotherapy. I do not offer hypnosis as a viable treatment option to all of my clients.

Do you work with insurance companies?

Many extended health plans do cover psychotherapeutic services therefore, I recommend you check with your provider about available coverage. I do not offer the option of direct billing to insurance companies. Clients are responsible for payment upon receipt of services and subsequently submit necessary documents to their insurance provider to be reimbursed.
