Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the first step?
    In order to determine if we are the right fight for your needs, we offer a free 15-minute consultation to speak with a therapist who will provide a safe space where you can reach out to ask for help and answer your questions. You can schedule your consultation now or give us a call.
  • Shouldn’t I just take medication?
    Medication can be effective but it alone cannot solve all issues. Many times medication is needed in conjunction with counseling. Our work together is designed to explore and unpack the problems you are experiencing and expand on the strengths that can help you accomplish your personal goals.
  • Would I have to be in therapy for life?
    The length of your treatment is determined during your initial assessment and based on the goals you want to work on in therapy. Treatment plans are created around short-term and long-term goals. On average, most of our clients see significant changes after the first six sessions. To reach their goals, people typically complete 12 to 36 sessions. For best results, we recommend starting with weekly sessions.
  • Do you have any availability?
    We currently have limited availability. Please give us a call, or schedule a free consultation for the most up-to-date information on our availability.
  • What’s the difference between talking to a therapist and my best friend?
    A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing your business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotions, and you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
  • I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?
    Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, we will help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.
