What is online therapy?
All sessions are held via a private and Hipaa compliant telehealth platform. That means we will see each other on video and not in person. You will be able to be in the comfort, safety and privacy of your own home. And the good news is, online sessions are every bit as effective as in person.
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?
Relationship therapy is best done together. However, sometimes you need help individually processing the relationship problem itself. I am very comfortable meeting with you, and then if you would like your partner to come, meeting with both of you. However, it is important there are no secrets kept between us. As long as you and your partner are comfortable with this, I am happy to accommodate therapy in a way that is most helpful.
In most cases, when I do couples therapy, I meet with both partners for the intake. Then, I see each of you individually for one session and we come together after that.
