I use hypnotherapy to help people find the emotional causes of current issues of concern. Once we find those problems together, we then desensitize them, gain insight, and help make cognitive changes.
2. What do you specialize in? Why?
I specialize in the treatment of Chronic Illness including Tinnitus, as well as Anxiety, Fears, and Phobias. Chronic illnesses include Fibromyalgia, Environmental Illness, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I feel that focusing on a few key issues in my practice allows me to be more effective and experienced, which gives you the best probability for improvement.
3. How long, and how frequent are therapy sessions?
Our initial session is approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours in length, where we will discuss why you have come, your goals, expectations, and personal case history. You will also have the chance to experience some trance and focusing techniques at the end of the session. Subsequent sessions are approximately 90 minutes in length. Frequency is determined through pre-session information that I gather from you as well as our first session together.
4. How long will I be in therapy?
Length of therapy varies, and depends on the reason why you have come to see me. In general, the number of sessions is related to the issue and its severity. Most clients utilize 8 to 12 sessions. Although the number is flexible and may vary. I will openly discuss with you from the beginning what I estimate our time together to be.
5. Who do you work with?
I work with all ages – as long as it is in my area of specialization. Otherwise I will try to refer you to a qualified therapist or discuss your options.
6. Where are you located?
I am located in Larchmont, New York, a suburb of New York City. My office is conveniently across from the Larchmont Train Station for easy access by train or by car. Free parking.
7. Do you do therapy over the phone? Webcam?
I do conduct phone and webcam (skype, facetime, etc.) sessions on a regular basis. We would discuss your options to see if you are someone who would respond well to treatment conducted via phone or webcam.
8. Do you accept insurance?
Although, I am considered a ‘reimbursable’ therapist in the state of New York as I am a licensed psychotherapist, I am not an in-network provider. However you may be entitled to receive partial reimbursement for out-of-network services. We will help you explore this possibility with your healthcare provider before we meet.
