People come into therapy for many reasons. Some need to respond to unexpected changes in their lives, while others seek self-exploration and personal growth. When coping skills are overwhelmed by guilt, doubt, anxiety, or despair, a psychotherapist can help. Therapy can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping for issues such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement, spiritual conflicts, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. People seeking psychotherapy are motivated to take responsibility for their actions, work towards self-change and create greater awareness in their lives.

What can I expect?

During sessions you are expected to talk about the primary concerns and issues in your life. An individual session lasts 45 minutes, but some people request longer sessions. A session with a couple is 60 minutes. People often find that one or two sessions a week are most helpful. During the time between sessions it is beneficial to think about and process what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or trying out new behavior.

What is therapy like?

Every therapy session is different and tailored to each individual/couple based on what they are presenting as their needs and goals for treatment.

How long does therapy take?

The length of therapy depends on what concerns are being presented and what we are doing together. Sometimes there are specific goals that are being addressed and the problems can be resolved within a few months. A longer term addresses more complex issues that focus on unresolved pain from the past.
