FAQ

  • What is your client focus and what do you specialize in treating?

    • My practice focuses on treating adults over the age of 18. I specialize in the following: anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, attachment disorders/inner-child healing, educator specific stressors, and stress management. 

  • Where do therapy sessions take place?

    • I offer both in-person and virtual sessions. In-person sessions are held at my office located at 2317 Silas Deane Highway, Suite 2 in Rocky Hill, CT. Virtual sessions are conducted through a secure, HIPAA compliant EHR platform. Once an appointment is scheduled, I will send you a link to set up your client portal. You are able to access our session through the portal each time we meet.

  • How long do therapy sessions typically last?

    • Each therapy session lasts approximately 50 minutes.

  • Is an initial consultation required?

    • Yes. A consultation call is an opportunity for you to share a little bit more about why you are seeking therapy, ask any questions you may have, discuss availability, and determine if you and I feel my services are a good fit for your therapeutic needs. 

  • What happens after the initial consultation phone call?

    • If we decide to move forward in treatment together, we will schedule an intake appointment. Prior to the intake appointment, I will send you documentation to fill out. These forms must be filled out prior to us meeting. We will review the paperwork during your intake appointment.

  • What is the purpose of an intake appointment?

    • The purpose of the initial intake appointment is to gather background information, identify presenting problems, and create an individualized treatment plan to help reach your goals. This is also an opportunity to decide if we would be a good fit for on-going treatment.

  • What is your cancellation policy?

    • My cancellation policy requires 24 hours' notice if you are unable to keep an appointment. Cancellations less than 24 hours in advance or "no showing" a scheduled appointment will incur a charge of the full session rate. Insurance will not cover late cancellation/"no-show" charge.

  • How often should I attend therapy?

    • Consistency is imperative to achieving success during the therapeutic process. We will determine frequency during your initial appointment.

  • Do you prescribe medication?

    • No, I do not prescribe medication. If you are seeking a psychiatric evaluation or medication management, I can provide referral sources for medical professionals in the area.
