FAQs
HOW LONG AND HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK IS A TYPICAL SESSION?

Sessions are usually 50-60 minutes. Most clients are seen once or twice a week in the beginning, then, as time goes on, less frequently. The number of sessions depends on what your current needs are.

HOW LONG WILL COUNSELING LAST?

The length of time a client is in counseling depends the nature of the problem and the goals of the counseling. Some clients have a very specific problem that can be worked through in a set course of counseling. For others, counseling is an on-going learning process and they choose to receive counseling for a longer period.

​WILL I NEED MEDICATION?

As a counselor and therapist, I do not prescribe medications. However, based on a joint assessment of problems you may be facing, it may be advisable to consult with a psychiatrist or PCP to determine whether medication is warranted. Typically, clients see someone under their health insurance coverage or I can refer you to a psychiatrist if you do not have a PCP.
