F A Qs

  • How do I find the right therapist?
    It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel safe and comfortable sharing your private thoughts and feelings. Therapy is a very vulnerable space and finding someone you feel comfortable with will make all the difference in your healing process. Clients typically report having a "gut" or instinctual feeling that they have found the right therapist. Building trust with any therapist requires some time and is not expected to happen in the first session. I provide a warm, safe and empathic environment where trust can be built and you can feel free to be your true self without judgments.
  • What should I expect in our first session?
    Individual sessions are 50 minutes. The first session is usually different than the later sessions. In the beginning, we will take some time to review your intake paperwork and further get to know you, what brings you to therapy and/or what problems you have been experiencing. This allows us to start developing trust, which is an important part of the healing process.
  • What will therapy be like?
    Therapy is different for each person and with each therapist. Though I cannot tell you what it will feel like, the general census is that you will feel SEEN and UNDERSTOOD. Therapy will be whatever you need it to be, depending on where you are in life and what you bring into sessions. Some individuals walk in to therapy prepared to talk about the nitty gritty while others may take some time to dive deep. No matter your experience with therapy, whether you have been before or this is your first time, it will be a space for you to meet the real you. No judgements, just understanding.
  • Do you prescribe medication?
    As Mental Health Counselors we do not prescribe medication. Referrals to a psychiatrist can be provided should you be interested or as needed. However, we are huge believers in seeing whether therapy can help improve your symptoms or concerns alone. It typically takes about 3-6 months of therapy for you to see any form of progress. If you are interested in medication, it is your decision and this is something we can discuss together and referrals may be provided.
  • Is my information kept confidential?
    Yes, your privacy is of the utmost importance to us and we ensure it is kept confidential. Your information will not be disclosed to anyone unless we have your written permission. The instances in which we are required by law to disclose your information without your permission is: In the case of suspected child abuse or dependent adult/elder abuse If you threaten serious harm to another person If you threaten to cause imminent harm to yourself and are not cooperating with efforts to ensure your safety If we are ordered by a court judge with a signed subpoena These situations are rare and if they do present themselves, we will inform you of any steps taken.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    We are no longer in network with any insurances. For clients who have OUT-OF-NETWORK benefits, we can provide a superbill (detailed bill) for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. We recommend you contact your insurance provider before hand to find out if you have out of network benefits and what is their reimbursement rate. This will let you know how much of what you pay upfront will be reimbursed to you by your insurance provider. We offer limited slots at a reduced fee of $140 for 50-minute sessions. Please note: Reduced rate options are limited slots and dependent upon availability.
  • What is different about 'holistic therapy'?
    The word holistic means wholeness. When working with a client, we do not only focus on their mental health or symptoms. We view each person whole with different interconnecting parts, ex. mind, body, and soul. Therefore, our practice addresses your mental health through the interconnection of your physical and spiritual being. We may also integrate spiritual gifts/abilities and spiritual services, which allow us to tap deeper into your being and what you are experiencing in this lifetime. We may refer or recommend you to our spiritual practitioner for spiritual services to help address or tap into other parts of yourself.
  • How do I pay?
    Payment for therapy sessions are processed electronically. We utilize a HIPPA compliant platform for our sessions that sends you electronic documents for completion, including a credit card form. You may use (debit, credit, FSA or HSA) for session payments. After this point, your payments will be automatically processed and there is nothing more you have to do.

If you are in therapy, it can be a great addition to what you’re already doing in sessions.

  • More on Sound Healing...
    "The human body is wired to be exquisitely sensitive to sound. The faculty of hearing is one of the first senses to develop in utero and the last to depart before death. In addition to perceiving sound through our ears, we also 'hear' the pressure waves of sound through our skin and the water that makes up 70% of our body. The 'secret' of sound healing has been known by mystics, healers and spiritual teachers since ancient times and is now being echoed in the words of visionary doctors and quantum physicists, who- like ancient mystics- declare that the world is sound and everything is in a state of vibration." - Jonathon Goldman, Pioneer of Sound Healing in the West
  • More on Cord Cutting...
    Relationships aren't all good or all bad. Our relationships can either bring us peace and healing, or they can make us unwell and adversely affect every other area of our lives: finances, personal growth, mental health, spirituality, community and the list goes on. The person in relation to you doesn't have to be someone you have major issues with; it may be someone currently in your life who you love dearly, someone who has transitioned or even someone you haven't seen in decades. When you form any type of relationship with someone, it creates an energetic cord attachment between you. Many times that connection still remains present on an energetic level even after the relationship has ended. Cord cutting can be used for familial and inner child work as well, releasing you from beliefs about yourself and life that were picked up on as a child from parents, guardians, religion and society. Much like how in psychology all the issues that are running our lives subconsciously need to be addressed and changed, cutting cords of attachment does the same work in a much simpler way and has long lasting effects.
