Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for someone to contact me to set up my appointment?

You will be contacted within 48 hours of submitting a request.


What is the process to begin therapy?

After you complete the contact us form, you will be emailed an invitation to the client portal. The client portal allows you to complete the intake questionnaire, upload insurance information, and access the calendar of your assigned therapist to schedule your first appointment. Once all your information is received you will receive a call from the administrative assistant to discuss your copay.


Do you provide in office or virtual therapy sessions?

We offer both in person and virtual sessions. The decision is based on the clients needs. I encourage clients to assess if they have a private location with wifi service before committing to virtual sessions. Most clients do a combination of virtual and in person sessions.


What can I expect during the first therapy session?

During your first therapy session, expect a welcoming environment where you’ll begin to build a relationship with your therapist. This session is primarily about introductions, discussing your reasons for seeking therapy, and outlining your goals. Your therapist will explain their approach and confidentiality to ensure a safe and trusting atmosphere. You’ll cover logistical aspects such as scheduling and consent forms, too. The goal is to establish a foundation for future sessions, focusing on creating a comfortable space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. Remember, it’s normal to feel a mix of emotions, and this session marks a positive step towards your mental health journey.


How long are sessions and how often will we meet?

Sessions are typically 50 minutes long and are often scheduled weekly, especially in the beginning. Most people have been struggling to deal with difficult situations by the time they come to therapy. Weekly sessions will help to keep you accountable and motivated to work towards your goals in an efficient way. As therapy progresses, we can work together to determine if weekly sessions will continue to be useful. Some people will find that as they begin to heal and grow, fewer sessions are needed. The frequency of sessions can be adjusted in order to best meet your needs and maintain positive change.


What is the difference between a Therapist and a Life Coach?

Therapists work through emotions, behaviors, and thought patterns with their clients in order to come to a place of mental wellness. Also, therapy goes into the past, and usually has focus on why things are the way they are currently. On occasion, Life Coaches may explore a client's past, but only to recall successes and inspirational moments. Life Coaches meet their clients in the present moment and focus on the future. Overall, Life Coaches clarify goals, identify obstacles, and create action plans in order to aid their clients in future success.
