Chapter 1.- “ How Can Therapy Benefit Me?”
Participation in therapy can result in a number of benefits to you, including being more authentic to who you are, improving interpersonal relationships and resolution of the concerns that led you to seek help.
Chapter 2. -“Embracing Change”
Therapy may result in decisions about changing behaviors, employment, substance use, schooling, or relationships.
Chapter 3.- “The Time Commitment”
Most counseling clients come weekly. Committing to and prioritizing that time is ideal. People may reduce frequency once things improve.
Chapter 5.- “The Right Fit”
I view the process of therapy as a collaborative process, so I invite clients to provide me with feedback on their progress. Sometimes it becomes clear that a different approach or level of care is best or necessary. If I initiate terminating therapy with you, it will be because I feel that I am not able to be helpful or a higher level of care is indicated.
The End and New Beginnings
Ending therapy well is important and length of counseling varies and is ultimately up to the client. Some clients may choose to take a break and come back for “tune up” sessions or to work out issues that may come up over time.
Therapy is truly an investment in yourself, and one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself!
