FAQ's

Successful psychotherapy

How long will I need to see a therapist?

Some people benefit from short-term therapy lasting a few months while others find it helpful to stay in therapy long term to continue benefiting.

It's a personal decision unique to each client.

 

How long is a session?

A session is 50 minutes.

 

How often do I have to see you?

At the beginning of therapy, it's best to meet once a week. If your schedule does not allow for this we can discuss an alternative plan that works with your schedule. 

 

Do you prescribe medication?

We do not prescribe medication. While medication is necessary for some people, therapy is shown to be necessary for anxiety and depression either on its own or in conjunction with medication treatment. If medication is needed I can assist you in finding a psychiatrist to meet your specific needs.

"Why is your name Butterfly Effect Therapy?" 

The butterfly effect comes from chaos theory. Simply put, it is the notion that a butterfly flapping its wings can influence a tornado on the other side of the world. The idea is that the tiniest change causes effects that ripple out and lead to big effects. This theory is a guiding light for the way we deliver therapy. When people can understand they need to make microscopic changes they will soon see sustainable real results of change in their mood, happiness, and relationships. A tiny shift in perspective, a new habit in your day, a thought of gratitude, a new belief, whatever that means for you no change is too small. But some changes can be too big so keep it tiny and you’ll see those ripples from the Butterfly Effect!
