Frequently Asked Questions
What are your hours?
Currently, I see clients as early as 10 a.m. and sometimes as late as 6pm. Evening hours are the most popular and therefore not as readily available as morning or afternoon appointments. I will always work with you to find a day and time that fits your schedule.
What about confidentiality?
Your visits with me are confidential. However, there are certain situations involving abuse, neglect or the intent to harm yourself or others that I am legally obligated to disclose.
Will you be in contact with other professionals involved in my care?
With your written permission and agreement, I will contact any clinician involved in your care. I believe it is important that all professionals involved work together to provide the best possible treatment.
Does couple’s therapy help?
The research shows that couple’s therapy definitely helps, as long as certain preconditions are met. My three session assessment process is designed to identify a number of variables that help us predict the likelihood of success.
How many sessions will it take?
Again, there is an initial three session assessment and fourth feedback session. After that, it is difficult to predict. Problems often resolve quickly but others can be more stubborn to address.
We are in crisis. Is there any way to speed up the process?
Yes, we can schedule a day or sometimes two of intensive therapy, including completion of the assessment process on Day 1.
Can I see you individually during or after our couple’s therapy?
I only meet with clients individually once during the assessment. Unfortunately, I cannot meet with you outside of couple’s therapy or afterwards.
