Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I need to be in therapy?

Your treatment is based on the assessment data gathered at intake including your unique needs, desires/goals for treatment and progress. The timeframe varies from individual to individual. Some individuals are able to meet their treatment goals in 3-6 months and other preferred long term sessions. Overall, the treatment is truly an individualized approach based on each individual’s unique situation.

What should I expect during my first session?

During the first session, we will review important information regarding the reason that you are seeking services. This includes historical questions about your life, medical and mental health and significant life events in order to gain better understanding of your current situation. I will listen to you and we will come up with a plan of action to address your unique needs. As we progress in the sessions, you will have the opportunity to vent, gain new insights and perspectives, learn to challenge your thoughts in a healthy way, develop and practice coping skills in order to manage symptoms. You will be exposed to learning applicable and practical skills related to emotional regulation, problem solving, communication, boundaries-setting, self-awareness, motivation and so much more.

What if I can’t afford your rate? Do you offer a sliding fee scale?

Yes, I have a small number of sliding scale spots in my schedule. If you think, you cannot afford my full fee, please don’t hesitate to contact me to see about sliding scale availability. If all spots are taken, I’d be available to refer you to other resources.

Can you provide services to clients anywhere in the country?

No, licensed clinicians can only service clients in the states they are licensed. I am licensed to work with Texas residents only.

Phone accessibility

If you need to contact me between sessions, please leave a message on my voice mail. I am often not immediately available; however, I will attempt to return your call within 24 hours. Please note that face-to-face sessions are highly preferable to phone sessions. However, in the event that you are out of town, sick or need additional support, phone sessions are available. If a true emergency situation arises, please call 911 or any local emergency room.

Cancellations and rescheduling policy

Cancellations and re-scheduled sessions will be subject to a full charge if not received at least 24 hours in advance. This is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you. If you are late for a session, you may lose some of that session time.
