Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor- Supervisor
I work with adolescents, adults and couples in person in 50 minute sessions. Occasionally, if needed, I will do 75-100 minute sessions. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy dosing sessions are 3 hours. In the case of illness, I will occasionally do phone sessions. I have a bias towards in person because I believe it builds the quality of the therapeutic relationship. So much of our brain is wired for attachment and picking up unconscious and semi-conscious micro expressions and movements in the people we are with. This is much harder to do through a screen.
