Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you work with adults?
Yes, I see adults for individual therapy, parenting consultation, and clinical supervision. Many adults who worry, have family issues or patterns that continue challenge them, or are experiencing a difficult loss or a new or unexpected change find it helpful working with me.
2. Do you accept insurance?
Yes, I take several types of insurance and would be happy to discuss your particular plan with you.
3. What types of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
4. How do I know when it’s time to seek help for my child?
A good time to consider seeking professional help is when the strategies you’ve tried are not having much of an effect. If your child’s issues significantly interfere with his or her school, work, family, or social life and if your child has experienced symptoms on most days for a month or more, it is also a good time to seek help.
5. How can therapy help my child?
Children often experience great relief when they express themselves fully and connect well with a trusted therapist. Success may vary depending on the particular problem being addressed, how well your child uses the process, and practices what he or she learns.
Some of the benefits from therapy include:
• improving self-esteem and confidence;
• changing maladaptive behavior patterns;
• learning new ways to solve problems at work, school, or in your family;
• improving communication and listening skills;
• managing anxiety, anger, grief, and other emotional pressures;
• developing skills for improving relationships;
• attaining a deeper understanding of yourself and your child;
