WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM OUR SESSIONS ?
The main goal of our work will be to enhance how you feel about yourself.
You may look forward to building your confidence, enhancing your self-esteem, healing emotional issues, learning new ways to cope with stress, finding new strategies to deal with difficult situations, and much more....overall, our work will increase your ability to enjoy your life. My office provides a safe space for you to explore all your issues, and an atmosphere where you can expect acceptance, trust, and mutual respect.
What type of clients do you treat ?
Mostly, I treat adults, young adults as well as some geriatric clients. I see clients individually, in couples and as families.
I also conduct groups in my office on topics of Anxiety & Panic, Money Relationships, End of Life Transitions and issues central to the LGBTQ community.
What is your approach to treatment ?
I take a client-centered approach to treatment. I base our work on your goals and what you want to achieve in your life. I use a combination of therapies, primarily cognitive-behavioral, EFT ( emotional freedom technique ) and I also use a coaching model. Very often I use a combination of these modalities in a collaborative effort to help you meet your goals. Together, we can determine what works best for you.
Is EFT safe ?
EFT is safe and there are no known negative side effects. Also, I am an LCSW ( licensed clinical social worker ) and I am trained to help you cope and deal with any emotional responses that may arise during our EFT ( Tapping ) sessions.
What areas are the focus of your practice ?
Anxiety & Panic
Critical Life Transitions
Divorce Related Issues
Grief & Loss
How long before I will feel better ?
Everyone responds differently. Once you feel comfortable and have a sense of trust in our relationship, we will be able to explore the issues that brought you into treatment. We will also monitor your progress and how you feel about our work along the way so you have a sense of the changes you are making.
How many sessions will I need ? and how can I pay ?
I believe that for EFT/Tapping to work effectively an individual needs to commit to a minimum of three sessions, sometimes further sessions are required. I also offer a complimentary 15 minute "Discovery" session by phone, Skype or Facetime to learn more about you and your interest in EFT/Tapping.
I encourage my clients to frame their thinking about what they are spending on their journey to wellness, much in the same way they spend money on things they enjoy. Often, we spend thousands of dollars on clothing, dining out or vacations over the course of a year without hesitation because it makes us "feel good". Think of your sessions in that same way. Your sessions are a personal, life changing, healthy investment to feeling good that can have life-long rewards.
However, I understand a client's need to be mindful about finances and offer several different ways to pay for sessions including; check, cash, credit cards and PayPal, as well as accepting some insurances.
Some of the other options I offer are 6 session packages and Half-Day and Full-Day Intensive Workshops, as well as customizing a program that works best for you. Call for further information so that we may discuss your needs.
