Frequently Asked Questions
These are just a few frequently asked questions. If there are any other questions that you have, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to answer questions regarding the therapeutic process for you.
Why would I see you?
My answer is, for almost anything that you would like to shift in your mind. The work I do is compatible with things like new and better habits, drug and alcohol counseling, problem gambling counseling, mental health counseling, trauma therapy, quitting smoking, weight loss, better diet, and exercise, diffusing stress, enhancing excellence in a given area, neutralizing negative charges to situations of past, present or future, public speaking, change in life direction, breaking unwanted habits, enhancing life capabilities, personal growth, creating a future, relaxation, emotional issues, unwanted emotions, finding life direction, manifestation, help with inner conflict, wanting to go in two different directions, fear, communication, interpersonal relationships, alignment, centering, empowering confidence, and much more.
How many sessions will it take to notice a difference?
The number of individual sessions necessary is different for everyone. Many people notice some results after the first session. There is usually something to work on and the focus may change from session to session. For example, if working on a problem by processing it only makes a small incremental change, coming at the issue from another direction like enhancing support and being solution-focused may create change in another useful way. The number of sessions you choose to have is up to you.
How do we start?
First, we get acquainted and get comfortable. Then we go over whether or not you want to know more details about the work or just begin talking about what you want to work on. Next, we use counseling in a way that helps to organize and sort information. We close with the option of hypnosis or meditation.
Do you take insurance?
Yes, but not for all services or insurances. For mental health therapy, I work under a supervisor for 4000 hours after my Master's graduation to become independently licensed. Until I am independently licensed, I contract through my supervisor's license. So, I can take most but not all insurance for online mental health therapy. Please contact me if you are curious about seeing me for counseling and wanting appointments to be covered by insurance.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for the session?
If you want to prepare your thoughts for the session, you can, but you do not have to do anything to be ready for the appointment. You can practice relaxing, breathing deeply, or meditating to help us in a session if you would like to be proactive. Also, think about what you would like to get out of the session and how you would like to be. How would life be if it were ideal? Can you imagine how exciting life could be?
I facilitate hypnosis if you would like to experience hypnosis, but not in the way you might imagine a classic stage hypnotist using it. After asking a ton of questions, I assist you in a progressive relaxation and talk about the things we went through in the initial part of the session so that you can adjust what is not serving you and allow what you want to come to you more easily. I have studied various types of hypnosis and I mix them all up for easy integration into your system. People are often delighted with the results and it feels good. Give it a try and see for yourself.
