Frequently Asked Questions

Helping you lead a more fulfilled and empowered life.


Is counseling right for me?

What can I expect?

How long is therapy?

The duration of your therapeutic journey is influenced by several variables, such as your availability, the dynamics of your daily life, the specific nature and urgency of your concerns, and your active participation in the therapy process between our sessions. Existing research indicates that most therapy clients typically experience substantial clinical progress within 12 to 15 sessions, and I hold similar expectations for our collaboration. Some individuals successfully complete their therapeutic goals within this timeframe, while others discover a continued benefit in the therapeutic process and choose to extend their sessions. My primary objective is to assist you in achieving your goals as promptly as possible. 

Will I be given a diagnosis?

You have the option to opt out of receiving a diagnosis. Diagnoses will be given solely upon your request, primarily for the purpose of facilitating reimbursement claims with your healthcare insurance provider. Any diagnostic information will be the subject of conversations between you and your therapist, serving the objectives of treatment planning and potential referrals to relevant specialists.

It’s important to be aware that when transmitting data to an insurance provider, it is the insurance company that determines the number and duration of treatment sessions, not you. Confidential information relayed to your insurance company may be retained in the Medical Information Bureau, potentially accessible by other entities, such as life insurance companies, in the future.

What is online therapy or distance counseling?

Online therapy, which is also referred to as distance counseling or Telehealth, involves delivering therapy services through electronic channels such as email, phone, video, and other digital platforms. Typically, sessions are conducted via phone or video calls. This approach is well-suited for addressing a wide range of concerns and enhances accessibility for individuals facing challenges in attending in-person appointments.

However, it’s important to note that distance counseling may not be a suitable option for everyone. Individuals in severe crisis or those contemplating self-harm are not the ideal candidates for distance counseling and are encouraged to seek assistance from a local therapist. In the event that such concerns arise during our collaboration, we will have an established emergency plan in place to connect you with local support resources.

Is it really confidential?

What you say in therapy, your records, and even your attendance are confidential. Confidentiality is a key element of what makes therapy work. You have the right to a safe and confidential therapy experience.

However, there are some exceptions:

  • When you give written permission to release information,

  • When your records are subpoenaed for legal reasons,

  • When reporting is required or allowed by law (example: child abuse or neglect, extreme danger to self, elder abuse, danger to others, or viewing or possession of child pornography).
