Do I need therapy?
Everyone goes through difficulties in life. While you may have been able to cope with the challenges you’ve encountered in the past, we all have times when we need support. When you realize you may need a helping hand, therapy can assist in the discovery and use of strategies and tools that can restore your sense of happiness, serenity and balance.
How can therapy help me?
Therapists can provide support and help you find relief for life's challenges such as trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship problems. Counseling is extremely valuable in managing personal growth, relationships, and the many stressors faced in daily life. As a licensed and experienced herapist, I can provide different perspectives on complicated problems and help guide you to useful solutions to your personal concerns.
What happens during therapy?
Therapy may be different depending on your goals for therapy and your individual needs and situation. Typically speaking, we will discuss the things that are currently happening in your life, things that happened in the past that are relevant or contributing to your current concerns as well as tools and strategies that may help resolve your challenges and help you to reach your personal goals. Ultimately, therapy is meant to be practical and to improve your overall well-being and satisfaction with life.
Medication vs. Therapy
Medication may or may not be useful or necessary, but medication alone cannot solve life's challenges or your emotional reaction to life events. Therapy is needed in order to address the source of your distress and behavior patterns that perpetuate the problems you may be experiencing. Check with your medical doctor and see what’s the best treatment for you.
Will our conversations remain confidential?
Confidentiality is a key component of therapy. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else. By law, your therapist cannot release this information without your written consent, except in the following situations:
- The therapist suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults or elders.
- The therapist suspects the client is in danger of harming themselves or has threated to harm another person.
