What is Therapy?

Therapy is an exploratory, problem solving process. In therapy, we explore problems and together, we work towards a resolution that is satisfactory to both your intellect and spirit The confidentiality of your records and therapy sessions is protected by State and Federal law. Records can not and will not be released to anyone without your written authorization.

What are the Goals of Therapy?

The overall goal of therapy is to help you better understand yourself, identify your needs, and empower you to make decisions that are in your best interest. Therapy usually begins with some specific personal goals you wish to achieve.

How are Goals Achieved?

Within a comfortable and confidential setting, we will work together to assess your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. Together, we will formulate a plan to initiate positive change.

What is the Therapy Process?

The therapy process includes the following components:
    Identify Problem(s)
    Gather related information
    Determine and implement your plan for change
    Evaluate your progress

Why is Therapy More Effective than Talking to a Friend or Family Member?

Usually, your friends and family members have difficulty being objective. A trained therapist is able to hear critical information that others often miss. A therapist is objective, empathic, and non- judgmental.

Sessions usually start on the hour and last about 50 minutes, although you can arrange for longer sessions. We will discuss fees when you make your first appointment.
