The frequency of how often we meet will be up to you; clients usually meet with me once a week or bi-weekly.
Can we meet in person for sessions?
I only offer virtual sessions through Simple Practice, a confidential HIPAA compliant online platform.
How long do sessions take? How are they scheduled?
Depending on which service you choose, will depend on the length of the session. However, standard individual sessions are 50-60 minutes. Sessions are scheduled throughout the week, I do not do weekend sessions.
When you become a client, you will have access to the Simple Practice client portal that will show you my availability to access scheduling sessions.
I've never been to therapy before, what can I expect from the sessions?
The initial consultation will be a 15 minute phone call where will we get to know one another. I will ask a few questions such as: (1) demographic information/pronouns, (2) what brings you to therapy, (3) what is a goal you would like to accomplish while participating in therapy, (4) what are you looking for in a Therapist. This is also a time for you to get to know me as well, so please bring all of your questions!
The first session will go offer demographic information, your responses to a therapeutic questionnaire, and establishing rapport with one another.
The sessions onward are all about you! There may be times that you bring topics/experiences to the session that you want to focus on, however, we may follow-up with a topic from a previous session. Each session is solely about you, so I will always follow your lead while helping you process through it all.
If you have any questions that I did not address, please reach out to me!
