FAQs

How can counseling be helpful?

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or just life's challenges, counseling can be an effective tool in understanding yourself and creating positive change, which results in finding more balance in your life. Effective counseling begins with a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship and the ability to tell your story honestly and without judgement or criticism.

What are the benefits of online therapy?

Online therapy has many advantages and is proven to be just as effective and efficient as face-to-face counseling. Some of the benefits of using online therapy include added privacy, flexibility with scheduling, increased accessibility, and improved comfortability. All video therapy and phone calls are provided through a HIPAA compliant platform and all paperwork is exchanged through a secure patient-portal.

Do you offer a free consultation?

Yes! Because of the importance of the therapeutic relationship, it is recommended to have a brief consultation prior to scheduling the first appointment.

What is the first session like?

The first session is designed to gather information and build rapport. Gathering information helps build the therapeutic relationship and gain a better understanding of your current and previous challenges.
