Post-trauma (hate crime and other situation-related trauma) stress and depression, grief and loss, activist stress, burnout and compassion fatigue, relationship/communication issues, life transitions, family of origin issues, and personal growth. I run the Cradled Heart group regarding burnout, compassion fatigue and wellness for activists, social service folks, educators, etc.
Therapy takes different amounts of time depending on the person, the therapist, the issues. It also depends on what else is going on in a person's life. Healing doesn't happen in a vacuum! I usually recommend that clients come to see me every week or two in the beginning and as it progresses then less often with the intention of ending the work we do together when it is the right time which is determined by the client.
