My Approach to Helping
If you're someone who has had something happen in your life that you're having a hard time working through, you may be a good fit to work with me. Maybe you've experienced a loss and are going through the grieving process, maybe you have a history of hurtful or abusive relationships and you want to talk about it with someone who isn't part of your friend or family circle. I work with you to address your concerns while focusing on steps you want to take to move toward the life you want to be living.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
How long and how often therapy takes place depends on a number of things. Therapy tends to progress more quickly when you commit to attending regularly and are motivated to experiment outside of session with the ideas we talk about together. Symptoms (like feeling depressed, anxious, restless, etc.) that are more severe tend to require more frequent sessions and may mean a longer time in treatment. As you learn to manage symptoms and problems in healthy ways you may need less frequent meetings. Most people don't want to be in therapy forever, the ultimate goal of therapy is to end therapy. Unless there are insurance restrictions, therapy can usually be continued until you feel like you've met your goals in a way you feel satisfied with.
