HOW CAN THERAPY HELP ME?

A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn.

WHAT DO I EXPECT OUT OF THERAPY FOR MY CHILD?

Child therapy is intended to be solution-focused and short term.  The goal is to help parents and children work together on the identified issue, monitor positive outcomes and transition out of therapy once goals are achieved.

When working with a child, we always meets with the parent(s) individually for the first session.  This is intended so that a comprehensive history of the identified issue can be discussed and treatment goals can be established.  Parent sessions are then scheduled throughout the course of treatment to discuss progress toward the identified goals.

HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?

A standard psychotherapy session is 45 minutes.  However, some clients like to schedule longer sessions if needed.  A double session of 90 minutes can be scheduled upon request.  

90 minute sessions are recommended for EMDR therapy.
