FAQs

I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you identify your strengths and explore ways that they can  reduce the impact of your current challenges.

What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of feelings such as sadness, stress, shame, or anger, it could impact your current or future interactions with the friend or family member.

Why shouldn’t I just take medication?

Medication can be effective but it alone cannot solve all issues. Sometimes medication is needed in combination with counseling. Our work together is designed to give you the skills and understanding needed to overcome your symptoms so that you can get to the root cause(s) and prevent future recurrences.

How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

Typically sessions include your current concerns, discussion of skills or interventions, and a homework assignment to support application of what is learned in session. Because each person has different concerns and goals for counseling, the therapy experience will vary.

How long will it take?

Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time counseling can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.

I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your success.
