If you don't find the answer to your question here, don't hesitate to reach out. 

  • I’m nervous about starting therapy. Is that normal?
    Therapy can be vulnerable and new, so it’s natural to be nervous. It can feel intimidating to sit with someone and talk about how you feel. The fear around that can feel overwhelming. It takes courage to start going to therapy. The fact that you are on here, looking for help, and reading this right now shows that you are being brave and seeking help. Therapy is a space where you can be yourself and bring all of the feelings you may have into session, including feeling nervous. I’m committed to finding a way to care for your nervousness and ensure sessions are as comfortable as possible.
  • How do I know if you are the right therapist for me?
    Take your time to read through my website. If you sense that I may be a good fit based on what you are reading, you can call me. During a free phone consultation, you can ask me questions about my approach, what a typical session with me is like, or any other questions you may have that are specific-to-you. You’ll also be able to speak to what's bothering you and we can determine how I could best be of service to you. It may be helpful to think of the first few sessions as trying out the waters together. During the sessions, you’ll be able to see how you feel working with me. My approach is not going to work for everyone. What’s most important to me is that you find someone who you feel is the right fit for you. We can explore that together.
  • What if I don't want to talk about something?
    If something feels overwhelming or even terrifying to discuss, that's actually very normal. It can often feel difficult to talk about some things. During our sessions, it will always be up to you if you feel ready to talk about something or not. We will collaborate on understanding what you feel ready to open up about. Together we will work through the difficult stuff. You can also share with me that you are nervous to open up about something and we can talk about that too. Whatever is present for you. Whatever you are going through. Bring that to the session and we can explore that together.
  • I’m scared that if I open up, you will think I’m crazy or a bad person."
    If you open up to me, I will not think you are crazy or a bad person, I will think you are someone who's very courageous. Many of my clients have had the same fear (that people would think they are crazy or a bad person). Through my own life journey and working with my clients, I know how ‘normal’ your experience is. You're a good person. Nothing you can say will cause me to judge you. I know nobody's perfect, we all have our imperfections, we all suffer in different ways. Whatever it is you're going through, I provide a comfortable space where I will listen to you and give you my full support.
  • Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?
    It can be concerning feeling like things you say or do in therapy could "get out." So I want you to know that unless there is an imminent danger to yourself or someone else, everything you share with me is completely confidential. I highly respect your privacy and value your trust. You can rest assured that you can talk about anything without fear of that information getting out. If you have specific questions about how confidentiality works, you can ask during a free phone consultation or anytime during our work together.
  • How long will therapy take?
    You might be asking about how long therapy will take because you are currently struggling and want relief fast. If this is true for you, I want you to know that on average, my new clients start seeing small amounts of growth after the first few sessions. By that point, they feel a little more calm and hopeful that healing is possible. The total duration of therapy varies from client to client. Some of my clients find 4-8 weeks to be enough to resolve immediate challenges. While other clients feel more supported by longer term therapy. We will work together to find the length of time that works for you.
  • What can I expect during the first session?
    Overall, you can think of the first session as an opportunity that helps me get to know you and the challenges that brought you into treatment. I’ll invite you to share more about yourself and we can also talk about what’s worked or not worked for your mental health in the past. Some questions that I like to ask during a first session include: - What brought you to therapy? - What goals would you like to reach by going to therapy? - What do I need to know about you to understand your current challenges? You can ask me questions as well. You might be curious about why I'm a therapist or how I've helped other clients like you. The most important part of a first session is that you see if you feel I’m a good fit for you. If you feel supported, seen, and at-ease with me, we can discuss if you’d like to meet again.
  • How can I get started?
    I'm here to talk during a free phone consultation where you can speak to what's bothering you and we can determine how I could best be of service to you. Call me today to get your free phone consultation at 720-770-2741.
  • Do you take insurance?
    At this time, I do not accept insurance or Medicaid. I am happy to provide a superbill, at your request, that you can submit to your insurance or FSA/HSA accounts for potential reimbursement.
