Frequently Asked Questions
The Merriam-Webster dictionary describes the word indwell as the verb meaning "to exist as an inner activating spirit, force, or principle". I believe we are meant to fully indwell our own minds, hearts, and bodies. For this to take place we need to learn what are the experiences, relationships, and patterns that are taking up space that we need to clear out. The process of indwelling is the art of becoming more of yourself and learning to embody all that you are meant to be.
I am interested in your services, but it seems like you offer counseling in Seattle, and I don't live there. Is there a way for us to work together?
Yes! I offer online tele-mental health services through a HIPAA compliant portal called VSee that allows confidential, secure connection. I am licensed in the state of Washington, and I offer tele-mental health services to individuals living in the state of Washington.
How often do I need to come to therapy?
Like any relationship, the therapeutic relationship is one that builds on connection and trust. In order for us to establish a safe place for you it is important for us to connect at least once a week. If we determine that it would be better for you to receive more care- we may work together as many as 2-3 times per week.
How long will therapy take?
Therapy is different for everyone, and there is no guarantee how long the process will take. I view therapy as a process of becoming more than a process of solving or fixing. As you become more of who you are intended to be you may find more areas that you wish to develop or process. I recommend staying in therapy for at least 6-8 months time to enable yourself to develop a strong foundation in the therapeutic relationship and gain better insight into the areas that you want to address.
I think that therapy could be what I need, but I am not fully ready to commit. What should I do?
Great question! Therapy can be a difficult and even scary thing to begin. It is an investment of time, money, emotions, and self. I believe the return on investment is more than worth the sacrifice, but don't just take my word for it!
