FAQ

How long does treatment last?

The duration of treatment largely depends on the nature and complexity of the problem being addressed. After our initial consultation and intake sessions I like to present my clients with a clear treatment plan with established goals and a tentative time frame for meeting those goals. We will periodically check on the progress made towards reaching those goals, and evaluate if the original time frame needs to be shortened or lengthened. 

I am a firm believer that good therapy should foster independence: I am doing my job right when my clients feel they no longer need my support. Therefore, I favor time-limited treatments. 

I wanted to schedule a consultation but there is no availability.

What are my options?

Unfortunately, due to my ongoing projects, I am currently only able to see clients in a limited capacity. Still, I understand that finding a therapist that feels right for you can be daunting and costly (in both time and money). This is particularly true for specialized treatment. 

If the concern that brought you here is one that you have been grappling with and coping with by yourself for a long time and you strongly feel that you can safely wait for treatment, you may request to be notified of when I next have availability by contacting me at info@taimapsych.com.

If you are facing an emergency or an urgent situation, please contact 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. 

The concern that brought you to this website seeking support is important and warrants attention. I strongly encourage you to continue searching for therapists.

 

Do you offer sliding scale rates?

Given the small size of my practice, I am unfortunately not currently able to provide discounted fees for the majority of my clients. Still, I believe all mental healthcare providers should make an effort to address the inequalities surrounding access to care. To this end, I keep a small waitlist for clients with non-urgent mental health concerns who require a lower fee.

 

Please note that for this list I will mainly prioritize clients specifically seeking my specialized services: Spanish-language treatment for trauma and migration related issues. If this is not the service you are seeking, I encourage you to continue inquiring after other provider’s sliding scale rates.

 

If you are facing an emergency or an urgent situation, please contact 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
