FAQ — Frequently Asked Questions
Why is therapy a good idea?
Often it is useful to find a person who has an objective perspective and training in helping people solve problems. Therapy is about helping you get the most out of your life. It is a time to drop your defenses and get real in a safe, confidential space. This is what makes a therapeutic relationship unique and the reason why therapy works.
How long will it take?
Depending on the situation, some people feel may feel complete after a few sessions. Others will want to dive deeper and continue for a longer period of time. Clients come to therapy once a week, twice a week, every other week, or once a month. The frequency of therapy is something we will discuss at our first session.
How long is a session? What is your schedule?
Each session is 50 minutes long. I am currently available to see clients Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Contact me to schedule an appointment at a time that is convenient for you.
What will my first counseling session be like?
We will spend the first session getting to know each other and discussing your concerns as much as you feel comfortable.
What is EMDR?
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a proven therapy that helps clients process distressing memories and trauma. You can find out more here.
How do I make an appointment? Where are you located?
You may contact me for a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to see how I can best help you. You may also call me directly at: 619-452-1082 (voice calls only; texting not available). I have two offices in the HIllcrest/Bankers Hill area.
What is your fee?
My fee is $140 per session. I offer a limited number of sliding-scale discounted fees based on income. Please call or email me to discuss this option. I accept cash, check, or credit cards.
Do you accept health insurance?
I do not accept insurance. One of the reasons for this is to ensure client confidentiality — neither your insurance company nor anyone else will know about your counseling sessions. If you like, I can offer a receipt ("superbill") for you to submit to your insurance company. You may receive out-of-network reimbursement if you have a PPO plan.
