Therapy is the process of meeting with a trained and credentialed professional on a weekly, ongoing basis.

The therapist helps you recognize and change deep-rooted and potentially self-sabotaging mental and emotional behaviors, thoughts, and patterns.

These are the things that are keeping you feeling stuck, in pain, and away from the life you want to live.

Yes. You decide. Choose what fits your character or schedule best!

Online Therapy may be best for you if: 

  • You have a demanding job with a busy schedule and its difficult for you to fit in another appointment
  • You live in a bustling city like Houston and don’t have time for commuting to and from counseling appointments
  • You live somewhere in Texas and can’t come into my office in person
  • You prefer therapy in the comfort of your home

The choice to seek therapy is a personal one.  Some people feel that they can solve their problems on their own.  Sometimes they discuss the situation with trusted friends and/or family.

A couple of questions to ask yourself when considering counseling:

  • What do I want to get out of a counseling relationship?
  • Are there specific goals/problems that I want the therapist to help me focus on?

Even if you don't have all the answers, the first step is to decide whether to seek counseling.

Individual and family sessions are 45 minutes long and typically occur once per week. Depending on the nature and severity of your problem(s), they could be more or less frequent.

Weekly sessions foster a strong therapeutic relationship and builds momentum toward your treatment goals.  The frequency of sessions may diminish as you progress applying what you have learned in therapy.

ART sessions are 60-90 minutes long and typically occur once per week. The number of sessions is usually 1-5. 

Counseling should always be a safe place where you are free to express yourself.  There are no right or wrong topics to discuss in counseling.  As the client, counseling is focused around you and your needs.  You should never be forced or intimidated to share things you are not ready to share.

In your first few sessions, your counselor will be getting to know you.  It is ok for you to be silent sometimes.  It is your counselor's job to keep your session flowing and this is accomplished when the client and counselor are both honest about what issues need to be discussed.

Worksheets, reading, journaling, and other techniques are often used in between sessions to help clients make progress on their goals.  However, each client is free to decide how much they are able to do between sessions.

Absolutely. What you share within our sessions is completely confidential.  There are exceptions, though.  If you indicate:

  • immediate threat of harm to self or other
  • suspicion of child or dependent elder abuse
  • in the case of a court subpoena

We will discuss all of this and office policies during your initial intake session.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
