The Process: Here’s what to expect.
People typically approach therapy with both fear and hope.
They’re uncertain about what actually happens. But they’re hopeful about solutions.
Let me reassure you, solutions are available when you’re ready to make the call.
First we talk, usually by phone, about the issues you need help with.
This helps me make sure this is the right path for you. (There is no financial obligation for this step.)
When you come to your first session, I will greet you with a warm smile and friendly introduction.
I’ll ask questions about your history, what’s going on in your life now, and what your goals are for therapy. This is a conversation that may unfold over more than one session, if necessary.
Your therapy will move at your pace.
Many experience a sense of relief and hope, even at this early stage, because they’re no longer facing their problems alone.
As we move forward together, my goal is to create a safe, welcoming place for disclosure and change.
You’re hurting; you want to change how you feel, or how you’re dealing with a difficult life circumstance.
Therapy provides insight, skills, and the power to make new choices going forward.
