    Getting started – How does this work?

    We will schedule a 15 minute phone consultation, where we will talk about what is going on in your life and how I can best support you. It will give you a chance to get a taste of my personality and what it will be like talking to me. This time is focused on determining whether I will be a good fit as your therapist and whether in person or online therapy is right for you. At the end of the consultation, we will decide if scheduling a session is the next step for you.

    I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

    Not at all. People who ask for help are, in my opinion, the complete opposite; incredibly brave! If you are here, it’s because you know you are ready for a change. During our time together, I’ll help you explore and identify your own strengths and learn new skills to help you feel more empowered and connected to those around you.

    What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

    Talking to family members or your best friend can be a great resource to have if they are supportive and not critical. The biggest difference between me and them is that I am trained and experienced in mental health. I can identify, assess, and diagnose symptoms that others wouldn’t know to look for. I have been working with mamas/new parents, children, and families for nearly a decade. As a trained professional, I can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you feel empowered and connected to those around you. An additional perk, one of my favorites, is that therapy is completely confidential (with a few exceptions). You won’t have to worry about family members “knowing my business” or being the “gossip of the town” you live in.

    How long will I be in therapy?

    Unfortunately, I can’t answer this question. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.

    Can my child be present for our individual session?

    Absolutely! Children under the age of 18 months are welcome to join you when needed. Breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and pumping are also welcomed.

    I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

    I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions! Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your success. Showing up on time, being mentally present, and putting in the (sometimes) hard work will help you succeed!
