Common Questions About Therapy

Why Consider Therapy?

People seek therapy for many different reasons.  Some people are unsatisfied and feel stuck in life and are unsure how to make changes to create a more satisfying life. And others may be seeking therapy to address deeper issues such as anxiety, abuse, depression, past trauma, relationship issues, and life transitions.

What Can I Expect from a Session?

A therapy session is a time to share what you are looking for out of life and get some specific feedback. It can help you set personal and/or professional goals and develop a plan to help you achieve them. A counseling session provides a snapshot of your current life situation and allows you to gain better insight of the issues that you are facing now. A counseling session helps to identify where the issues and roadblocks originated from and why. This is all done in a safe, confidential and comfortable environment.

How Will My Life Improve from This Work?

You will gain a better insight and understanding of who you are and the direction your life has taken. This is important because lack of understanding and appreciation for our lives can create negative patterns of behaviors. An understanding of ourselves garners a sense of empowerment and joy in everything we do and this in turn reduces stress and anxiety we feel in daily life.

Your confidence will be restored and communication with others improves.  Individual counseling can give you a better all over sense of health and wellbeing.  Life becomes more manageable and satisfying.
