What is therapy like?
The first session of therapy is known as an assessment. An assessment is one hour and is a good opportunity for you and your therapist to get to know each other. Of course, your therapist will want to hear why you have come in for therapy and what your goals are, but he or she will also spend some time asking you about your history (childhood, education, work experiences, social life, hobbies, etc) to get a full picture of who you are as a person. Yor therapist will make certain recommendations about what course of therapy will be best for you and how he or she can help. He or she will also want to hear your impressions of the first meeting. Remember the most important aspect of therapy is that you feel comfortable.
After the initial session, most clients meet with their therapist every week, once a week for 45 minutes. The focus of treatment is on the goals you set with your therapist. These goals will be monitored throughout the therapy process. As your goals begin to be met your therapist will discuss the process for ending therapy (known as "termination").
How long is therapy?
The length of therapy is different for everyone. The average client will spend 3-4 months in weekly sessions and then “taper” off by coming in every 2 weeks, then once a month and so on. We also conduct “booster” sessions every 3-6 months to check in and see how things are going.
How do I know if therapy is working?
Progress in therapy is different for everyone. Some may see improvement very quickly while others see gradual changes over the course of months. Your therapsit will continually check in with you to determine how therapy is going and evaluate your progress. The therapy process is one of constant evaluation and readjustment to ensure that your therapist is best serving your needs.
