Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question you’d like to ask? I’m committed to giving my clients the best care and experience that I can. There’s no such thing as a bad question when it comes to mental health. Check out the answers to the FAQs below, and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any additional questions.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is essentially "talk therapy" that assists and supports persons, with mental health concerns, to improve their current life situation(s) and overall well-being. Psychotherapy encourages and supports people to develop healthy and functional coping mechanisms with an individual's unique challenging concerns. Psychotherapy can be brief or long term; much of the work depends on the individual and their concern(s). Overall, psychotherapy promotes healing and growth!
How Do I Know I Am Ready For Therapy?
Clients always know when they need support and are ready for therapy. This moment of realization sometimes occurs when current coping mechanisms are no longer adaptively functioning and things are feeling more difficult to manage than previously. However, each client has their unique reasons as to how they know they are ready for therapy.
How Does Confidentiality Work?
It is a therapist's ethical duty to breach confidentiality if:
A client is at harm to self or other(s).
A child (under the age of 18) or a senior (65+) is at risk of harm.
A client's files are subpoenaed by the court.
A client experiences a health emergency during a session.
