Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can therapy help me?
A: Therapy provides a safe space to focus exclusively on you. Regardless of your specific goals and concerns, therapy often helps people become more self-aware, be more in-tune with their own needs, and feel more confident in addressing difficult situations.
Q: Can you provide medication?
A: As a psychotherapist, I (Kaitlin) cannot prescribe medication. Medication can only be prescribed by doctors or psychiatrists. I can collaborate with your doctor or psychiatrist, if you specifically requested, in order to help them assess your needs for pharmaceutical support.
Q: Will I be in therapy forever?
A: No, though some people do choose to continue therapy for long-term periods (1yr+) on a consistent basis depending on the level of support they need. Ultimately, the goal is to help you feel confident and independent enough to move through life on your own. In that case, you may choose to return when going through transitions or difficult life events.
Q: How do I know if I'm ready to start therapy?
A: There's no exact answer, but a good rule of thumb would be if you find yourself thinking about it often—"it" being the possibility of reaching out for support. Even if you feel reserved or guarded, you can be ready to start, it might just mean that the goals you work on with your therapist are more trust-focused.
