How long does therapy last for?
Individual sessions last for 50 minutes.

How many sessions will I need?
That really does depend on your needs and what you want. I offer long-term, open-ended therapy or short-term therapy depending on what is best for each individual person.

Can I stop therapy at any point?
Yes. There is no contract.

What if I can’t make a session?
I ask clients to give me 24 hours' notice if they cannot attend a session so that I might offer it to another client.

Do I have to pay if I can’t make it to a session?
