Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re not familiar with therapy, taking that brave first step can feel intimidating and nerve-wracking. Below are some questions frequently asked by new clients to help demystify the process. I am happy to discuss any further questions at your first free 15-minute consultation.

How do I know if I need therapy?

Everyone’s healing journey is different, and it is up to each individual to determine if therapy would be a helpful tool in their life. A common measurement of when therapy may be needed is if a mental or emotional issue, like depression, grief, or anxiety, for example, is starting to affect your day-to-day functioning, relationships, or job/school performance. However, some clients enter therapy for occasional checkups and a place to process short-term issues that may arise as a form of preventive care. In our one-on-one consultation, I can discuss how therapy may benefit you given your unique situation.

As I get started in your first session, there will be paperwork to discuss and sign that outlines my policies and procedures that guide our work together. Early on in therapy, I will ask a lot of questions to get a strong understanding of all possible contextual factors that may be influencing your presenting issue. Once I get a full clinical picture of what you’re struggling with, I will establish treatment goals together. In our following sessions, you can talk and I will listen, I may ask guiding questions, and I will ensure that our processing is following an evidence-based treatment protocol that will lead to healing. This may continue for many weeks or months based on your unique case. Once I reach a point where I both feel you have made progress toward your goals and are equipped to move on without therapy, I will discuss the termination process and ensure that you are comfortable moving on.

Confidentiality is one of the most important principles of our therapeutic relationship, and I follow ethical and legal statutes as it relates to client confidentiality. I am only legally mandated to break confidentiality in the following scenarios:

Currently, all therapy sessions are offered via telehealth only (i.e., virtual therapy). These sessions take place on a secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform called Simple Practice.

Please note that appointments must be scheduled while you are physically located within the state of California. This requirement is in accordance with licensing regulations, as therapists licensed in California are restricted from providing services across state borders.

Understanding the financial aspect of therapy is important. I believe that prioritizing your well-being is an investment in your future.

Currently, I don’t accept insurance payments, but my fees for intake appointments range from $225 to $250, and for individual follow-up sessions, they’re between $200 and $225.

I’m committed to making therapy accessible, so I offer reduced rates on a case-by-case basis. However, at the moment, all reduced rate slots are filled. If your financial situation changes or you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

Unlike talking out your issues with friends or family members, therapy is a safe space centered around your needs and healing. As much as I may love and rely on friends and family for support, there are many benefits to instead processing with a third-party professional whose listening and responses are solely designed to foster your healing. As a therapist, I also bring years of training, research, and clinical experience to our sessions to ensure that our work together is going to actively move toward healing.
