What to Expect from Psychotherapy

Psychotherpy is a process. Its an unfolding of your history, experience and life events. The time you will need to spend in therapy is hard to say upfront 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. We should get a feel for how long you might need to be in therapy within the first few sessions.

Information About My Treatment Style

While I am not the silent type of therapist, I do understand that you will need a safe place and the psychological and physical space to deconstruct your issues. As a team, we will identify the issues that rise to the surface and discuss how they play out in your life. Our goal is to find insights that make sense, information that you can apply to your life in real time.
