adjustment to changes in the family
problematic relationship dynamics
My Role as a Therapist
My primary role as a therapist is to provide a safe, reliable, and caring environment in which you, the client, have the freedom to explore your internal experience as we work together to accomplish your goals. My hope is to work collaboratively to develop an understanding of who you are, what is most important to you, and how your past experiences may be playing a role in your current difficulties.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
In my opinion, the most important factor in choosing a therapist is goodness of fit. This idea reflects one's level of comfort with the therapist and a general feeling that you are heard and safe.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
The duration and frequency of psychotherapy depends on a variety of factors, such as: presenting issues, severity and history of symptoms, the client's goals, other stressors outside of therapy, etc. I typically meet with individuals once or twice a week, dependent upon client need and personal preference. While some individuals may experience relief and improvement after only a few sessions, others may choose to participate in psychotherapy for a longer period of time. The decision to continue psychotherapy may be reflective of the quantity/severity of one's symptoms; however, many others experience symptom resolution and choose to continue the process to develop new insights and a better understanding of themselves and others.
