Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I begin?
I offer a no-cost, no obligation 20 minute phone consultation, so we can talk about your needs and I can answer any questions you may have. Schedule the phone consultation.

In-home Therapy: Having your therapist come to your home may be a great fit for older clients. This option is reserved for older adult clients (generally 65+).
I’m not sure I’m ready to start therapy. How can it help me?
I can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies that are different from talking to a friend or family member. I provide a non-biased, educated perspective on a difficult problem you may have or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how much you put into the process and practice what you learn. Some of the benefits of therapy include:
Better understanding of yourself, your goals, and values
Developing skills for improving your relationships
Finding solutions to the issues or concerns that brought you to therapy
Learning new ways to address stress and anxiety
Addressing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
Improving communication and listening skills
Changing old behaviors and developing new ones
Discovering new ways to solve problems with your family, partner, or work
Improving your self-esteem and building your confidence.
