HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO BE IN THERAPY?
The short answer is that it takes as long as it takes. Be mindful that there are many components including your commitment to the process. Some therapy focuses on the here and now which can be short term. Others may be experiencing invasive long term symptomatology that requires more intensive therapy.
WILL THERAPY "FIX" THE PROBLEM?
Therapy is essentially designed to help you become aware and actively address what is presenting as disruptive in your daily life. Your therapist will help you navigate the journey. While therapy can be helpful it often is very revealing and can be challenging and emotionally charging. While some people come hoping to save a marriage, sometimes they find separation has a healthier answer for them. The answers you get may not always be what you expect and yet people find that if their goal is to be healthier, more allied with themselves or their couple, connected and able to experience peace, harmony, and joy they are able to achieve success in therapy.
WILL THERE BE HOMEWORK?
The answer is yes. Leaving each session there will always be something to process further and think about. For couples or individuals engaging in couples work or sex therapy that may include specific activities. All activities are done in the privacy of your home.
Currently all visits are telehealth. Please inquire about scheduling the face-to-face procedure during COVID-19 pandemic via phone or email.

Trafficking in persons, also known as modern slavery or human trafficking, includes both forced labor and sex trafficking. By some estimates, as many as 24.9 million people — adults and children — are trapped in a form of human trafficking around the world, including in the United States. During the COVID-19 pandemic, traffickers are continuing to harm people, finding ways to innovate and even capitalize on the chaos.
