Frequently Asked Questions
In general, what you tell me remains
between you and me. I won't even
tell someone you are seeing me,
without your permission. However
in order for insurance to pay, I must
give them a diagnosis and they have
the right to ask for more info, but
that has never happened. However,
if there is indication of possible
child abuse, elder abuse or that you
might seriously harm yourself or
someone else, then I must report that.
What Happens in the First Session
I will ask you many questions about your current problems, your past, your family, your work, your health, hobbies and more. I will ask why you are coming now and what you've done to try to improve things. We will discuss goals for therapy. If I think I'm the wrong person for your, I will tell you that. I may suggest books or apps. Clients often cry in sessions and that's fine. I won't make you talk about anything that makes you uneasy.
How Long are the Sessions and How Many Times
Sessions are about 45 minutes long and clients often start out coming weekly, but that is variable based on schedules, finances, emotional needs and more. Some people feel better about a few times and others come for months into a year or so.
