Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect in therapy?
Psychotherapy begins with an assessment of your concerns and goals through intake questionnaires and face-to-face questions. Once Dr. Eaton has a wholistic picture of where you are and what you would like to accomplish, usually you attend weekly sessions (either psychotherapy or coaching) and talk about strategies for developing more satisfying relationships and enhanced life skills.
You also offer psychological testing, also called psychological assessment. What is that?

Do you accept insurance?
I do not take insurance and ask that you pay at the beginning of each session by cash or check. At your request, I will provide you with a receipt that you may submit to your insurer, and depending on your coverage, your insurer might reimburse you.
When will I know that treatment is complete?
Treatment length is specific to the concerns that bring you to therapy. I will have an open dialogue with you throughout treatment about how you are doing in reaching your goals. We can decide together if the form of treatment is working or if another form would be better for you. Some people find relief quickly while other people need more time to work through their concerns. Of course, you free to stop treatment at any time and for any reason.
I am afraid of therapy. Should I be?
Some people are anxious or afraid of therapy, especially if they have never been in treatment before. But after they begin therapy and get to know their therapist, most of them find that it is a place where they feel heard and accepted within a confidential context. This professional relationship can allow for new growth and change.
