PLEASE NOTE: Mentoring appointments are via telehealth only on a HIPAA compliant audio/visual platform. Mentees ages 18+ only.

  • Why mentoring and not therapy? In my experience, I have found that not all my clients met criteria for a DSM5 diagnosis and what they were looking for was more of a life coach to help with achieving personal and professional goals. Others may call this life coaching, which it is; however, I prefer the term "mentor," as I feel it better describes the nature of the relationship. 

  • How is mentoring different than therapy? With mentoring, the relationship will focus on developing you and reaching your goals both personal and professional. I will provide guidance based on both my personal and professional experience. We will not be processing your past and how it impacts you today as would likely be done in traditional therapy. You will not be given therapeutic interventions to use, etc. 

  • How can you help me? As your mentor, I can help you problem solve, determine best course of action, help you set realistic goals, and hold you accountable among other things. Some examples of areas I can help with as your mentor are being more appropriately assertive, setting boundaries, pushing yourself to make a career change, working on interviewing skills, increasing communication skills, finding a new normal in regards to life changes, etc. 

  • How long are our sessions? The initial session is approximately 50-55 minutes. Follow up sessions are approximately 45 minutes. 

  • How often do I need to see you? Since mentoring is less formal, this will be more up to you and what you feel you need. Often, mentoring is a long term relationship but we may not need to schedule an appointment every week. We may have an appointment once a month or once every few months. 

  • Can you guarantee my success? No, I cannot guarantee success such as I cannot guarantee you will land your dream job, etc. However, we will work together and I will offer you advice and suggestions based on my personal and professional experiences. My background in psychology will also aid in helping you work towards your goals.

  • How long do I need to stay in the mentor/mentee relationship?  Some mentees get what they need after a few appointments while others may need more. Again, the mentoring relationship is typically more long term but frequency of appointments are usually less than traditional therapy. 

  • Is what I say confidential? Even though my role with you will be as a mentor and not a psychologist, I am still a mandated reporter. Thus, if you were to inform me of something I am legally required to report, then I will. This is explained further on the Mandated Reporter Form you will receive should you become a mentee. 

  • What is telehealth and how do you do it? As a mentee, you will have access to your own client portal. There we will use a HIPAA compliant platform for our audio/visual appointments or we can do telephone calls. 

  • So, since I'm doing telehealth and I'm a mentee, I can have our appointments when I'm out of state or if I live in another state? Yes, since I am acting as a mentor and not a psychologist in this role, you do not need to be in the states in which I am licensed as a psychologist in order for us to have our appointments. Again, in this role, I am your mentor not psychologist. Thus, you can be in-state or out-of-state. 

  • Does insurance reimburse for mentoring? No, insurance does not reimburse for mentoring. Thus, you will not receive a "superbill." This is an out-of-pocket cost.
