In general, everything discussed between client and therapist is protected by law as confidential. However, there are some specific scenarios in which I am mandated by law to break that confidentiality.

If a client threatens serious bodily harm to another person
HOW DO I KNOW IF YOU’RE A GOOD FIT FOR ME?
Great question, research shows this is one of the most important pieces of a successful therapy experience. An initial phone consult is the first step in getting a sense of working together. If you have specific questions or concerns I suggest you jot them down ahead of time and feel welcome to ask them.
How long does therapy take to work ?
The short answer is that there is no official timeframe. Everyone is different. The reason it can be hard to give a set timeframe is that it really depends on what brings you to therapy, what you’re hoping to accomplish, what your unique life experiences have been and how much you’re willing to participate in the therapeutic process.
I find it helpful to have an initial conversation on this topic to ensure we’re beginning our work on the same page.
Do you see couples?
At this time I do not see couples. I know some highly skilled clinicians locally that I would be more than happy to refer you to.
