How does therapy work?
Therapy looks different for everyone. During our first session together we will spend time discussing what brings you in, your goals for therapy, as well as spend time getting to know one another. If we both decide we would like to work together, we will come up with a plan that includes how often we will meet, what your goals for therapy are and develop a plan for how we will help you achieve these goal.
Does therapy actually help people?
Yes. Many people find therapy helpful. Therapy can help you heal from upsetting life events, stress, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and grief. It is a place where you can receive support and learn ways to manage stress, increase communication, and feel overall move happy and fulfilled in your life.
How long will therapy take?
Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
I want to get the most out of therapy. How can I do this?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. Most of all, it’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you meet your goals. I will often suggests activities or “homework” for you to complete in between our sessions. You of course don’t get a grade for therapy, but the work you do outside of our time together will have some of the greatest impact on your healing.
