Frequently Asked Questions

Whether the process of therapy is completely new to you or you have been around the therapy block a few times before, below are some questions to help you along the way with what to expect.


How can therapy help?

Therapy can help you heal from a variety of past traumas and present day symptoms, and anticipatory anxiety.  Therapy can provide you with greater insight and understanding regarding your history and patterns as well as what action you can take to love yourself and live authentically.

How do I see if we might be a good fit therapeutically before committing?

I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to all potential clients.  If for any reason we are not seeming to be the best fit I would be honored to provide referrals to aim to assist you in securing the ideal support you are seeking.

Will you come to court for me and will you write me a letter?

While I understand that court battles can be extremely difficult I do not appear in court on you or your child's behalf.  Appearance in court often can put extreme stress on confidentiality and the therapeutic relationship.


Regarding letters, I approach them with extreme caution.

What can I expect from the initial session?

The start to your therapy journey begins with a 60-minute or 90-minute intake appointment.  I leave it to my clients to schedule the length based on what they are comfortable with.  While 90-minute intakes are ideal, they are not necessary.  I will ask that you have all initial paperwork completed and signed prior to our session as we will review this information during this session and you can bring any questions you may have.  During this session we will begin the assessment phase, get to know one another, and solidify initial goals for your treatment plan.  We can discuss frequency of sessions as well as scheduling at this time as well.

Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?

State law and professional ethics require therapists to maintain confidentiality excluding the following:

-Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to the authorities, including the Department of Child Safety (DCS) and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources.

-If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming her/himself or has threatened to harm someone else.

We will review Informed Consent in the intake session and discuss that confidentiality is one of the most important parts of the client and therapist relationship.  Additionally, should we decide sharing information with someone on you're healthcare team might be beneficial we can complete a Release of Information to coordinate care.

Do you take insurance?

I do not take insurance, however, you can contact your insurance provider to determine if you have out of network benefits.  If requested, I can provide a superbill to submit to your insurance provider.

Transformation doesn't ask that you stop being you.  It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength that's already inside of you.  You have only to bloom.
