More Info About My Practice
Reilly Counseling has options now. Clients can be seen in person or on online using a secure platform. I help pre-teens, teens, and adults catch their breath when dealing with anxiety, stress, or trauma. The challenges did not appear over night in most cases and change will take some time too. I have seen some clients for a month or 6 months. I have some clients who want to take summers off and start when school starts. Therapy requires work. You have to put some work into to see true change. It's going to be hard at times and you will learn tools to help you in the future.
The rate is $125. Privacy and confidentiality are just as important as in-person counseling. A secure video platform is used for scheduling, intake forms, sessions, and payments. An email will be sent to you for each appointment. If there is a problem, I'll log off and join again. If the issue continues, I'll ask you to rejoin the appointment. On occasion, this solution won't fix the problem so we will switch to having a session over the phone. Overall, it's worked well for my clients. As with anything, there have been a few challenges and we switched to the phone.
It is hard reaching out for help. Finding the right therapist for you is important. Do your research, schedule a free consult and ask questions. Take action today.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
This is maybe the most asked question. In the beginning, I truly have no idea. As we complete the intake and have a few sessions , I tend to get a better idea for my recommendation. It varies for each client. Some clients start with a clearly identified problem, are motivated and do some work outside of session. It may be a 3-4 sessions. Other clients may come identified some different patterns, explore different coping skills and continue in therapy for 3-6 months. For individuals with trauma, it may last a year or longer. Treatment ferquency depends on different factors including severity of symptoms or fiancial concerns. Together we discuss what works for each client.
