COMMON QUESTIONS

common-questions
What services do you offer?

We provide practical, evidence-based psychotherapy treatments for anxiety disorders and stress-related problems and holistic counseling and personal coaching for individuals recovering from emotionally abusive relationships.

What is holistic mental health?

Holistic mental health is a strength-based approach to treating common mental health issues, emphasizing healing and personal growth that addresses the whole person, not just what feels broken.

What is cognitive behavioral (CBT) therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (or CBT for short) is a model of understanding human experience that emphasizes the relationship between our thoughts (what we think), our behaviors (what we do), and our emotions (what we feel). By examining these relationships, you can begin to change your behaviors and thoughts to help improve the way you feel. CBT has many essential components, including:

  • CBT uses models to help you develop a new understanding of your difficulties.
  • CBT is skills-based, so it encourages the development of new skills to manage difficulties.
  • CBT is a structured treatment, ensuring that therapy is efficient and remains focussed.
  • CBT deals with the “here and now,” focusing on factors that maintain the problem rather than what started it.

Since you cannot change the past, CBT deals with factors in the present that you can control; e) CBT’s most essential treatment component is “homework” completed between sessions. The homework exercises help you practice skills learned in treatment sessions. It helps make progress as rapidly as possible and enables you to develop a sense of control in your ability to manage difficulties.

How long does treatment usually last?

How much does treatment cost?

What payment methods do you accept?

I accept payment by cash, check, debit card, or credit card.
