Fees, FAQ & Resources

Have a question? Want to know a bit more about me or my services? To help you get your answers quickly, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular questions I’ve received from clients, accompanied by thorough answers. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Get in touch and I’ll be happy to assist you.


  • How long is therapy supposed to last?
    Therapy is an individual process that can last anywhere from a few months to several years. It all depends on your personal goals, and how long you want to be in treatment for. As a mental health professional, I may recommend a certain course of action, but it is always up to you to decide.
  • How often should I have therapy sessions?
    I recommend weekly or bi-weekly sessions. Therapy should not be an added stress in terms of time and commitment. It should be easily integrated into your life as that is the way to make it most effective and consistent. The frequency also depends on the severity of issues addressed (sometimes it may be required to come more than once a week) and the availability of time and resources one has (therapy should not be a burden on your time and finances).
  • Sometimes I feel worse after going in for a therapy session. Why is that?
    This is common, and this is not always a result of therapy of not going well. You may feel worse because certain uncomfortable feelings were brought to the surface and addressed. Often in the presence of a warm and kind individual (aka therapist), and the space allowed to access certain feelings, you may allow yourself to experience emotions that you have neglected for a long time. If, however, this is a concern, you can always bring it up with your therapist.
  • When am I supposed to feel better?
    There is no exact time or deadline that a therapist can give you. You may see an improvement as early as the first session. Sometimes it takes much longer to see improvements and it is important to trust the process. You will know therapy is working when you begin to feel and think differently about the issues that brought you in, and when you notice a positive change in your outlook and behavior.
  • I don’t think I have had any breakthroughs yet. Am I doing therapy all wrong?
    Not necessarily. A breakthrough can happen gradually and then it doesn’t really feel like a breakthrough. It feels like slow and steady improvement.
  • I feel like I need to talk to someone, but I don’t know how it will help me. Can you explain a little bit more about what to expect from therapy?
    This video explains the process of psychotherapy really well.
  • I feel really upset by something that my therapist said in session. I don’t want to quit therapy but this feeling is nagging at me. What should I do about that?
    You should definitely talk to your therapist about it. These are important moments in which you can fully express yourself and be heard. One thing to remember: a therapist is a neutral presence and when something that has been said by the therapist triggers an intense negative emotion, it is a great opportunity to process this with your therapist and further understand why you felt this way. If you are experiencing this, try not to ignore it and bring it up in session. It will be extremely valuable to you to process and openly discuss. I am sure there are way more questions that come up related to psychotherapy. Feel free to reach out to me and ask!
  • Are there refunds for coaching packages?
    I can provide a refund during the first week of the coaching program. Afterwards, if you feel that you are not getting what you need from coaching, we can discuss this openly and honestly and I will do my best to adjust my practice so that you find the program successful. Before we embark on a coaching program, I provide a 30 minute free consultation to decide if I am the right coach for you.
  • I started coaching but now I think that therapy might help me more. Can I switch?
    We can definitely discuss this and tailor the program so that you feel you are getting exactly what you need.
  • What is better for me: therapy or coaching?
    It depends on your goals. If you want to improve your mental health, have a better understanding of your thought patterns and emotions and achieve an overall sense of peace, wellbeing and harmony, then therapy can help you with these goals. If, on the other hand, you have more specific goals such as: change careers, lose weight, improve health, create work/life balance, start a business, then coaching might be the best way to go in order to achieve your desired results.
  • Will you be different as a coach than as a therapist?
    A little, but not a whole lot different. As a therapist, I will focus on exploration of your life and inner world, such as thoughts and feelings. As a coach, I will focus on finding barriers that prevent you from achieving your goals and work together to create momentum and a mindset shift. Ultimately, my laid back, easy going personality will shine through and I will not be pushy in any way. Coaching and therapy are two sides of the same coin, with slight adjustments in terms of approaching desired goals.

Things I love and recommend often to my clients

I believe there are a few things you can do that will greatly improve your day to day life. I recommend the following to all my clients and I also use these tools in my daily life. 


Meditation - I find meditation to be the one single tool that, if practiced daily, has tremendous benefits in terms of health and wellbeing. There are many types of meditation, but my favorite is this one.


Journaling - Yet another tool I recommend to almost everyone who comes to my practice. Journaling is a wonderful way to get to know yourself, and to explore your thoughts and habits. If you are having a hard time starting to journal, this is a good way to start. 


Videos - Social media often gets a bad rep but some things online can be really educational. This YouTube channel is a favorite of mine when it comes to explaining most life issues that everyone wrestles with.
