Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I could use counselling?
What will we discuss during my free consult?
We talk for 20 minutes about what your current struggle is, what your goal might be for sessions, and how I can be of service. This consult allows you to get a better sense of who I am, and I can let you know how I would approach helping you. We can arrange this conversation by phone, online with Zoom, or in person.
How many sessions could I benefit from?
What is the difference between short term, medium term, and long term counselling?
What makes positive psychology so effective?
What can I expect to happen in sessions?
Do you recommend parents and youth having sessions together?
YES! We love when parents and teens are willing to have sessions together. Changes in family dynamics and individuals wellness happens more powerfully and for longer term when parents and youth are both willing to shift and stretch themselves emotionally and mentally.
We recommend that the initial free consult includes both parent and youth and we collaborate to decide how the sessions will look to best serve the struggles and challenges you are working on.
Sometimes, youth like to have their own sessions as this allows them to have their own space to be themselves and be heard outside of the family system. And if that is the case, we encourage parents to participate in their own counselling work (which can be our Parent Course: Thriving with Teens) until both youth and parent feel safe, trusting, and ready to have sessions together when possible.
How do I set up an appointment with you?
Is counselling confidential? Will my parents or friends find out anything…
There are times when you will be encouraged to share with important people in your life, with thorough support and guidance, and only when you feel ready. The only time I have to share information is if I suspect you are in danger of harming yourself or another person, or I suspect there is child abuse.
What might I feel after a session?
How can I help make my time in counselling session most effective?
