Frequently Asked Questions 

Do you offer in-person sessions?

I am only offering Telehealth services and don't have plans to return to in-person. I do have office space in Downtown Raleigh if at some point this changes. 

I am happy to provide services to men. However, most of my training and experience focuses on providing services to women and gender expansive folks. 

Do you work with men?

Yes. I offer a free 15 phone consultation to learn more about my therapeutic approach and ask any questions you may have. 

Do you offer free consultations?

What is S.A.F.E. EMDR?

EMDR is an empirically, evidence based treatment approach. Safety and Attachment Focused EMDR was developed to address some common blocks that many therapists were experiencing when working with clients who have experienced complex trauma. The ultimate goal of the S.A.F.E. EMDR approach is to facillitate the most safe and efficient way to implement EMDR Therapy.  These theories specifically address safety and relationship aspects.

The same as in-person but no driving and you're welcome to wear your pjs! I will ask you to find a private quiet space to meet for our session and send you a link to a HIPAA compliant portal. 

What is teletherapy like? 

Teletherapy has been successfully utilized in the US since the 1990s. It allows me the flexibility to offer late night and weekend appoints. It also increases access to services. 

Why teletherapy?

It happens! If I'm not the best fit for you I am happy to refer you to a colleague that you may vibe with better. Ultimately, I want what's best for you. 

What if you aren't a good fit?

EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or completing homework between sessions. Rather than focusing on changing emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, it allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. For
many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies.
