Frequently Asked Questions

What types of issues do you specialize in?

I specialize in a wide range of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, self-esteem, coping skills, and life transitions.

How does online therapy (Telehealth) work, and is it as effective as in-person therapy?

Online therapy, or Telehealth, allows us to connect securely through video calls, providing therapy from the comfort and privacy of your own space. Numerous studies show that online therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy, offering the same level of support, confidentiality, and therapeutic benefits.

What can I expect during a therapy session?

During our therapy sessions, you can expect a safe and supportive environment where you can freely express your thoughts and emotions. I will actively listen, provide empathetic feedback, and collaborate with you to explore your concerns, develop coping strategies, and work towards your therapeutic goals. Sessions are tailored to your unique needs and concerns.

How long does therapy typically last, and how frequently should I schedule sessions?

The duration of therapy varies for each individual and depends on your specific goals and progress. Some clients find relief in a few sessions, while others benefit from longer-term therapy. The frequency of sessions is typically weekly, but this can be adjusted based on your needs and availability. Together, we will determine a schedule that works best for you.

Is therapy confidential, and what are the limits to confidentiality?

Yes, therapy is confidential. I adhere to strict ethical guidelines, ensuring that your privacy and confidentiality are prioritized. However, there are legal and ethical limits to confidentiality, such as instances where there is an immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, or in cases involving child or elder abuse. I will discuss the limits to confidentiality during our first session, ensuring you have a clear understanding of your rights and privacy.

Can you prescribe medication?

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am unable to prescribe medication. However, if needed, I can provide a referral to a physician.
