What kinds of issues do you work with?
I work with all kinds of mental health issues, but primarily, my practice focus is on working with individuals who are struggling with toxic stress and anxiety.
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say. The issues that bring individuals to therapy are unique, and the length of time spent in counseling varies. I recommend individuals attend therapy as long as it continues to be helpful and the process is beneficial. The client is the one in control of that decision.
A couple of details for you to know…
I run my practice out of a small home office which creates some specific issues that may or may not impact your decision to start therapy with me.
I don’t have a traditional waiting room or receptionist area. There is a small front room that is suitable for people to sit in for short periods of time, but not appropriate as a play space for children who are waiting for their parents to return from their therapy session.
Also, I have cats in my home. While they do not hang out in my office, I know that cat dander can be a health issue for some people. I do have ways to handle mild allergies, but individuals with significant cat allergies should not come to my office. If you are interested, teletherapy may be an appropriate alternative. Please feel free to discuss this with me over the phone.
How are you operating during the COVID-19 pandemic?
In order to maintain everyone’s safety, currently I am conducting all of my appointments by telehealth. I use a fully secure provider and utilize the Zoom format. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about this. I’m happy to discuss with you how telehealth can be a vital part of your mental health journey.
