Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is it confidential?

Yes. We abide by all laws and regulations and value keeping you and your information safe. No information will ever be released without your consent.

Do other people struggle as badly as I am?

Yes. Unfortunately, many struggle alone and never know how many others are also struggling or that people like us are here to help. Shame and negative self-talk are often key components that keep us stuck in our negative behaviors and feeling alone and helpless.

Are video sessions effective?

Yes. And there are many awesome pros to video session including a more flexible schedule, the convenience of not having to leave your house or office to see your therapist and we can follow you as you move or travel and ensure that your growth and progress is not interrupted.
