    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 know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing. 

    How can therapy help me? 

    A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

    • Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
    • Developing skills for improving your relationships
    • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy
    • Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
    • Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
    • Improving communications and listening skills
    • Changing old 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

    What Can I expect at the first therapy session?

    During the first session we are building a rapport and getting history of what lead you to therapy and what you hope to accomplish.

    Are the services confidential?

    Absolutely. Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and psychotherapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the therapist’s office. Every therapist should provide a written copy of their confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone. This is called “Informed Consent”. Sometimes, however, you may want your therapist to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team (you’re your Physician, Naturopath, Attorney), but by law your therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission. All client’s are protected under HIPPA confidentiality law of 1996. However, Texas ethics mandate that there are certain circumstance where confidentiality can be breached for the protection of client and others. These exceptions are listed in the “Informed Consent”. 

    Does your agency provide a guaranteed?

    We guaranteed that we will be consistent, informative, supportive, transparent, professional, and empathetic to your needs. We will strive to provide the best possible safe space for healing and growth.  

    How long do sessions last?

    Individual therapy, and family/friend/couples therapy sessions typically last for 45-53 minutes however, 90 minute extended session are by special request and for an additional fee. The first intake session is 60 minutes. It can be helpful to commit to the same time and day every week, although we are aware other commitments might make this difficult and will try to offer flexibility where possible.

    How long will it take?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time counseling 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 counseling in the first place.

    How often should we meet for therapy?

    We recommend meeting weekly for the first 4 weeks if you are new to therapy. Most clients continue to meet weekly however, some clients opt for biweekly sessions under certain circumstances. Weekly sessions offer focus, continuity and in my experience, the best therapy outcome. We only work with a certain number of clients at any one time, so you can be assured I’m fully invested in our work together.

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

    We 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.

    Do you work off a pay sliding scale?

    We have a few slots ( first come basis) available for those needing financial consideration for the first 4 weeks of therapy.

    I work full-time. Can I get an evening appointment?

    Yes, we offer evening appointments  Monday Tuesday through Friday. Evening appointment slots tend to fill up quickly. We are available Monday-Friday 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM. We are also available Saturday from 8:00 AM to 1 PM.
