Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started?
You’re already on your way by doing your research and finding a therapist you think would be a good fit. I offer free phone consultations so that you and I can briefly discuss your reasoning for seeking therapy and set up a convenient time to meet in person. Call or email me and we can start your therapeutic journey today!
Which insurance is accepted?
I am currently unable to accept insurance. I am actively working towards becoming an in-network provider with most major insurances and will update any clients on that status if applicable.
How can counseling help me?
Counseling or therapy can be beneficial for anyone looking to examine what’s going on in their lives, explore how coping skills – both adaptive and maladaptive ones – are impacting your life in all areas, and identify ways to re-engage in your life that empowers you. Most individuals often feel an immediate relief upon sharing long-held worries with a therapist and with continued work together in the therapeutic relationship you can slowly move forward while implementing the skills and new insight gained from counseling.
What areas do you specialize in?
I have over seven years of experience working in the mental health field and while I am capable of working well with general concerns I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders in adults. Eating disorders are complex and multifaceted illnesses that require specialized therapy, medical, and nutritional support – if you or someone you know are struggling please do not hesitate to call or email me.
I'm on the fence about therapy - what should I do?
It can be a daunting decision to start therapy and it is natural to have second thoughts and worries. In my experience it is often a genuine internal voice that is wondering about self-growth and therapy. Conversely it is often a fear based voice that discourages self-exploration. I would encourage you to consider listening to that first voice. Therapy is an ongoing relationship and not a prison sentence – you can test it out and, with honest communication with your therapist, continue or discontinue therapy as it makes sense to you.
