What to Expect from Psychotherapy
Psychotherpy is a process. It will require time and patience. You lead. I follow. My role is to mediate thought, observe and offer insights. The time you will need to spend in therapy is up to you and is different for everyone. Sometimes, clients may only need a few months to sort out a specific issue and others may spend much more time in therapy resoving and deconstructing complex issues and history. We should get a feel for how long you might need to be in therapy within the first few sessions. Please note: if you are in crisis, please call 911 or a crisis intervention therapist. Once the crisis passes, you will be ready to explore this type of work.
