Every client is different, with different needs that require varying lengths of time participating in therapy. This is your therapy and you, of course, get a say. The overall aim is for you to feel better and get back to your life showing up the way you want. Once clients meet their goals therapeutically, some feel they are ready to move on, but many choose to consider checking in with their therapist occasionally as a tool to stay balanced and on track. Therapy is not exclusively for the tough times. It is extremely useful when life is going well, but you desire help keeping your new skills crisp, examining blind spots, and finding growth opportunities.
will i be in therapy forever?
Once you have made the decision to see a therapist, you may still have feelings of apprehension stir up in you. Take a deep breath, and be comforted knowing these feelings are completely normal. Therapy is a shared process and journey. I will listen carefully, ask thoughtful questions, offer insight and suggestions, teach you new skills, anticipate setbacks, and assess progress as you move towards the life you want. During the initial session, you will begin sharing your story, discussing your thoughts about your goals, and how you would like to see change happen. We will begin to devise an agreed upon treatment plan, including how often we will see each other. It is important to remember that coming to therapy consistently is integral to steady progress that realizes the best possible outcome for your success.
What can I expect from therapy?
Since scheduling an appointment involves the reservation of time set aside especially for you, a minimum of a 24 hours' notice is required for rescheduling or cancellation of your appointment. Sessions canceled within 24 hours are subject to $75 fee. I completely understand that emergencies do come up, but please know that a last minute missed appointment does not leave an opportunity to fill that time slot with someone who is on the waitlist and wants to be seen. I will give my best effort to be mindful of your time and appreciate that courtesy in return. Sound like a deal?
