Is what I talk about in therapy confidential?
Confidentiallity between a therapist and client is central to the working therapeutic relationship.​​​ State law and professional ethics require therapists to maintain confidentiality. However, at times, this confidentiality may need to be overridden: 

  • Suspected or reported past or present maltreatment (abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation) of children, adults, and elders. 
  •  If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is in serious danger of harming him/herself or has threated to harm another person.
  • If records are subpeoned by a Judge. 
 
How long is each therapy session? 
Therapy sessions are typically 45-55 minutes in duration for individual, couples, and families. Group sessions may be one to two hours in duration. 


What if I need to cancel my appointment? 

If you need to cancel a session, we ask you kindly provide at least 24 hours notice. This allows us to offer the open time to another individual who has requested to be seen. 

Do I really need therapy?​​

​​​​​​​
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life. While previous difficulties may have been successfully resolved without therapy, there is nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it.

In fact, therapy works best for those with the self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand. This is not always an easy step and is something to be admired. 

Therapy provides long-lasting benefits, support, and the necessary tools to overcome challenges, avoid triggers, and replace ineffective behavioral patterns.
