Common Questions

How can therapy help me?

If you are interested in a more fulfilled and contented life, therapy can place you on a path toward your goals. I see clients dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. Some of the benefits available from my therapeutic sessions include:

  • Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals, and your values
  • Developing skills for improving your relationships and managing your emotions
  • Replacing negative behavior patterns and developing new ones
  • Discovering new ways to solve problems in your family or marriage
  • Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence

Do I really need therapy? I can usually handle my problems.

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand. Your presence on this page indicates that you sense that need. You are to be congratulated and admired for that! By assuming responsibility for where you are in life, you are taking steps toward change, and therapy is probably the best option to help you achieve the change you desire. As your therapist, I will be committed to giving you the tools to overcome whatever challenges you face.

When can I get an appointment with you?

I see most of my clients during “the normal business day,” but I also take some appointments during the late afternoon and early evening hours.

What is therapy like?

The therapy I do is tailored to your unique make up and dynamics and the unique challenges presented by your environment. You will be treated as the unique individual that you are, and your therapy will reflect this.

Regular sessions will be needed for you to achieve your goals. The level of benefit that you receive from therapy will correlate with your commitment to integrate what you learned in sessions into your everyday life.

What about medication vs. psychotherapy?

Mental and emotional problems and the pain they cause cannot be solved solely by medications. Medications can be helpful, but they just treat symptoms. Therapy, on the other hand, can address the causes of your distress and the behavior patterns that curb your progress toward wellness. Working with your physician, you can determine what is best for you. In some cases, a combination of medication and therapy is the right course of action.
