TRUE TEA WITH T
Definitely NOT Your Mama's Therapist
Choosing the RIGHT Therapist is like choosing a life partner - chemistry and trust are an essential combination in a successful relationship. Got questions? I’ve got answers! I go above and beyond to act as a safety net for my clients, and strive to make their experience as pleasant as possible. Take a look at some answers to the most frequently asked therapy-related questions and requests below.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
We meet each week for 45 to 50 minutes each week. I can meet for extended sessions (60-75 minutes) depending on your needs and if scheduling can permit.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE AND/OR MODALITIES THAT YOU USE WITH CLIENTS?
To be honest with you, I love sitting in the company of people who aren't used to feeling seen and heard and so, I keep it as real as possible with you in the (virtual) therapy room.
Most, if not all of Psychology comes from westernized thinking and I'm learning that most modalities are created by white men, which doesn't always vibe well with the populations that I work with.
I see a person first and then together we come up with goals for therapy. My number one goal is to give you a safe place to let your hair down & explore, to laugh, cry, swear, & be human. Therapy is YOUR place to own your healing journey and apply things you've learned in sessions outside of the therapy. :)
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
I usually have a very limited amount of sliding fee based slots available, please feel free to contact me regarding the sliding fee rate, as it's a pay what you can scale that ranges between $125-$140, depending on circumstances.
At present, 12/21/22, there is approximately 1 sliding fee scale slot open. **This will be updated once these slots are filled again**
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
At the moment, I can only accept either Aetna or self-pay clients. In Spring 2023, my ability to accept Aetna clients will change & I'll only be able to accept self-pay clients.
ARE YOU OFFERING IN PERSON OR VIRTUAL SESSIONS?
I am only seeing clients virtually through a secure videoconfrerencing platform.
WHERE YOU BEEN AT ALL THIS TIME?! (KIDDING, ALTHOUGH, I DO GET ASKED THIS A LOT TOO LOL)
I've been right here, THIS WHOLE TIME. Nah, but for real, I had to jump through a bunch of academic and professional hoops to be here with you today and can I just say......I'm SO happy and thankful to be in this space with you. :)
