• What is therapy and how does it work?
    • Therapy is an effective means of helping individuals, couples, and families deal with difficulties they are unable to overcome alone. While there are many different forms of therapy available to the public, research shows that the type of therapy a person receives is less important that the relationship between the therapist and client. In fact, many therapists work use an eclectic approach and incorporate different types of therapy in working to help people rise above their problems.
  • When should I seek therapy?
    • Once you feel that life’s problems are interfering with your day-to-day relationships or when feeling overwhelmed. It is important to remember that ultimately there is no “correct” or “incorrect” time to ask for help. Ultimately, only you know when it’s time.
  • How long does therapy last?
    • The length of treatment varies depending on the person and his or her goals. It is important to have an open discussion regarding what you wish to achieve in therapy and how long you expect this process to take.
  • Will my insurance cover my visits?
    • Generally, I am considered an “out-of-network” provider by most insurance companies. A best practice would be to contact your insurance company to ask about the coverage, as each policy varies. I would also recommend that you consider the implications of having therapy services as a part of your health record. It could impact other factors outside of your healthcare, including the ability to obtain cost-effective life insurance coverage. For more information about my insurance policies, click here.
  • How is my privacy protected?
    • HIPPA regulations apply to therapy sessions, just as they do in doctors’ offices. The law protects the privacy of all communications between a patient and therapist. In most situations, I can only release information about your treatment to others if you sign a written authorization form that meets certain legal requirements imposed by HIPAA.  There are some situations where I am required to disclose information without your consent or written authorization. For more information on HIPPA, visit http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy.  For more information on confidentiality, review my Policies and Services Agreement form.
  • What does a typical therapy session look like?
    • Historically, therapy is conducted face-to-face, but there is flexibility to do sessions by phone as well.
