What days of the week do you meet with your clients?

  • Tuesday and Wednesday I am at my Granite Bay location.
  • Thursday – Saturday I am at Middle Way Health in Sacramento.

How long is a session?

Typically, individual sessions are a ‘therapy hour’ (50 minutes) and couples sessions are a ‘therapy hour and a half’ (75 minutes).

How often will I see you?

I initially meet with the client weekly and gradually move towards every other week or once a month depending on the the needs of the client.  Some clients find that they want to increase the frequency of therapy during times of stress or crisis. Some clients find that meeting weekly helps them to cope with challenges more effectively. Every therapeutic journey is unique. I am an outpatient therapist and will assist clients in referring for additional, more intensive services as needed.

How long do I need to be in therapy?

Since every therapeutic journey is unique, there is no standard length of time prescribed to be in therapy.  In general, a good time to end therapy is when you have gained acceptable relief from the problems you are facing and the probability of the symptoms returning are significantly reduced.  You are not obligated to be in therapy and can stop at any time.
