What if I’m undecided about therapy?
It’s normal to have concerns.
You may worry therapy cannot help you or you may feel hopeless about it. If you’re predicting that nothing will make you feel better, you may be wrong.
View therapy as an experiment.
There is no way of your knowing in advance that therapy will help, but it has helped countless people with difficulties. Think of giving cognitive behavioral therapy a try; there’s probably no hard evidence that it won’t help.
You don’t need to make a commitment to a minimum number of sessions.
Some find even a few therapy sessions useful and then choose to continue working on their own.
Realize that there is no big risk.
If it’s not helpful, you can stop, but the potential benefit might be great. It would be a shame if you decided not to try something that could really make a difference in your life.
Many insurance plans pay for all or part of the cost of therapy sessions including evaluation and treatment. My goal is to teach you to be your own therapist and to keep therapy short.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may be the best investment you could make!
How long are the sessions?
Session lengths usually last for 45 minutes, but may vary based on individual need and/or insurance plan guidelines.
How much do you charge?
I take several insurance providers as well as private pay. Please call to discuss at (248) 881-3457.
Do you prescribe medication?
No. I will refer you to a local, trusted psychiatrist as needed.
Can I feel better just from therapy?
Yes! Together, we will develop a treatment plan that works best for you. We’ll work on tools to help you get a better understanding and relief from your symptoms. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness are both evidenced based practices that have been proven to be effective tools in the treatment of depression, anxiety and overall mental health.
