What is Therapy Like?
Therapy can vary greatly depending on the individual and the goals of the clinician and the patient. Generally, I will want to discuss the event that lead you to seek therapy in the first place and move on to identifying more specific goals for the patient, working toward resolution. Commonly, sessions will be scheduled weekly and will last around an hour and periodic mutual assessments and goal setting are built into the process.
Therapy can be focused on a singular issue or can last long term – addressing overarching personal issues and working on emotional growth. On occasion, I might suggest books, movies, activities, or other homework. It is always important that I have all relevant data and information, just like your doctor.
For therapy to be effective, you must actively participate in and out of your sessions.
One of the most important parts of therapy is making a connection with the client. When I enter a session with clients, I am present with them the entire time we are together. Once the session is over, my attention to the needs of my clients continues. Whether it is returning a phone call in a timely fashion, keeping scheduled appointments or being flexible with a client’s life circumstances, I remain connected.
