Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don't know what to say? Knowing where to start can be difficult – I get that! I typically start the process by ensuring we are a good fit for each other. That involves getting to know you, where you are in life, what you enjoy doing – things that may not be directly related to the reasons you are in therapy. Once you’re ready to talk about what brought you to therapy, we’ll start that journey together.

I want my child to start therapy - what is the process? I love working with children and teenagers – they have a unique perspective on life that I love to explore. When they come for services, I know parents likely chose to bring them for some reason. When I work with children and teenagers, it is very important to establish good rapport and create a solid relationship. This way, they know they can trust in our relationship. With regard to privacy, I work with clients and parents to create a privacy plan to help determine what will be shared with parents. If there is an issue that I believe needs to be discussed with parents or guardians, I will work with the minor to determine the best way to approach it. I typically prefer for minors to have discussions with their parents, but am more than willing to be a part of the discussion. Parents are more than able to discuss any issues with me at any time.

How do I know others won't find out I'm in therapy? I am required by law and by my code of ethics to maintain confidentiality. There are very specific circumstances that would require me to maintain confidentiality, which are outlined in the intake documents prior to our first session.

What do the letters after your name mean? LPC is a Licensed Professional Counselor. It requires completion of a graduate program as well as a two-year residency. CCATP is a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional. This requires extensive experience and education relating to anxiety in adults and children. CSOTP is Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider. This requires completion of a graduate program as well as a one-year residency specifically addressing sexual offending issues.

What does CSOTP mean for clients? I have worked with individuals on probation for sexual offenses. This provides me with unique experience in working with individuals addressing a variety of sexual concerns. These concerns include viewing pornography, inappropriate or unhealthy fantasies and masturbation habits.

How often will sessions be? This will depend – you and I will discuss a timeline that best suits your needs. For some clients, weekly sessions are important to establish a routine and address the urgency of needs. For some clients, every other week or monthly is a better option to maintain stability. We’ll discuss this together in our first few sessions.

Will sessions be virtual or in-person? As of now, I am maintaining sessions virtually. All sessions will be held over a secure, confidential platform. I will let all clients know about the transition to in-person sessions once the decision has been made.

What insurance do you take? Tavernier Therapy Group is in the process of paneling with Anthem, BlueCross BlueShield, CareMore and Wellpoint Military Care.
