What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. As a Licensed Psychotherapist specializing in Anxiety, I 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, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if 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.
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time coaching can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place. My approach is solution-focused and typically takes fewer sessions to heal.
I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.
What is tele-therapy?
Online Counseling has a lot of advantages over traditional in-office therapy and it is becoming more and more popular, especially during this Covid-19 pandemic. There has been a higher demand for online counseling lately, and I am proud to be be able to provide this form of therapy to my clients.
I have found that my clients benefit from online counseling just as much as they benefit from in-person, face to face counseling. We are aware that the biggest factor in therapy is the therapeutic relationship and I am definitely able to establish and maintain a healthy therapeutic relationship with all of my clients.
I have a secure, HIPAA compliant platform where we will meet and conduct our sessions in the comforts of your own home or office.
