Choosing a Therapist
Choosing a therapist can feel overwhelming and confusing. It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist so that you are able to share your concerns. A good therapist will be supportive while you process your concerns, will encourage you to make changes that you want, and will challenge you to try new behaviors and think differently. You can achieve significant improvements in your life as a result of a good working relationship with your therapist.
In the first meeting you and I will discuss your specific concerns. You will be asked to review the problem area and you may be asked to fill out some questionnaires. You can ask me questions about the therapy process. At the end of the session, we will discuss a plan for future meetings,
Therapy sessions cover your personal history, current coping skills, the development of new skills, and the assessment of progress toward your goals. A session typically lasts 50 minutes and initially, weekly sessions are best.
