What is therapy all about?
Therapy is about working though the problems you may be having. We all have problems and most of us need therapy to deal with them. However, the majority of people never have enough courage to talk with a Therapist to address the problem! There are many techniques that can easily be taught to help one cope with or even overcome depression, stress and anxiety, anger, and relationship sexual problems.
What are your rates?
I don't want to or am unable to come to your office to see you, can you help me?
Yes! E-Mail, phone, and videoconference is available. This option saves so much time and effort, especially when you add in travel, babysitting, etc.
Are you the same as a psychiatrist?
No. I am a Licensed Therapist (LCSW, LCAC, CST). I focus on behaviors, emotions, and choices. A psychiatrist prescribes medication and rarely does psychotherapy.
Who needs therapy?
If you are human, you have problems. Therapy can help with these problems. People do not have to be "mentally ill" in order to benefit from therapy or coaching. A wide range of issues can be addressed. I tend to work best with people who are struggling with the feelings of anger, anxiety, depression, difficulty with their sexuality/ sexual identity or sexual dysfunction.
How long does it take?
The length of therapy depends on the person. Many people see substantial benefit in less than twelve sessions.
What kind of people enter into therapy?
Those who want to improve the quality of their lives, their relationships, and their families.
What makes you qualified to treat me?
I have worked with the majority of populations, including people with severe mental illness, behavioral problems, questions about their sexual identity, substance abuse, sexual offending, suicidal and homicidal thoughts, as well as people with psychosis. My work in community mental health gave me client loads of approximately 100 people. I feel fortunate that I am able to serve my small caseload in private practice with quick appointments and maximum personal service.
