Frequently Asked Questions
How does payment work?

How long does therapy take? About how many sessions?
What is the success rate? Does therapy even help?
At the beginning of therapy, we decide on specific goals and how to measure progress. A common question might be: "If you could come away from therapy saying, 'This was worth it, I'm glad I did it', what would be different in your life?" You decide what success looks like.
Do you prescribe medication?
No, I do not. Marriage and Family Therapists are unable to prescribe medications. Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practioners are the most common professionals that prescribe medication for psychological needs (some family doctors may prescribe on a limited basis, but they may not have specific training in that area).
Do you take insurance?
Yes, Aetna and Teacher's Health Trust
