Common Questions

What can I expect with counseling?

Counseling, also known as therapy or psychotherapy, is a process to help treat mental health issues or diagnoses.  You will find a non-judgmental safe place to tell your story and have a compassionate witness to your struggles.

I work with you to explore connections between your past experiences, thoughts, and emotions and how they influence the patterns in your life. Counseling focuses on increasing self-understanding and learning skills to build on strengths to enhance your quality of life.

It can address unhealthy relationships, family dynamics, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, addiction, managing emotions, past trauma, grief/loss, adjusting to something new in your life, and other mental health-related issues.

What can I expect at my first session?

During the session, I will get to know you and your story. You will be asked how I can help you reach your goals and together we will develop a plan.

However, your courage to seek help and begin to create the change you want in your life will make you more comfortable as the process continues.

How often do I need to come?

The frequency of visits varies depending on what goals you want to work on. Typically, most clients attend weekly.
