Psychotherapy, also known as “talk-therapy,” is the process of meeting with a trained therapist in a safe, confidential, and caring environment where the therapist assists you in exploring your history, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and goals; and create a personalized process towards resolving barriers and patterns that keep you from experiencing joy, tranquility, and/or success in your life, career, and relationships. Each person is different; and the reason for seeking therapy varies. Life doesn’t have to be falling apart in order for one to seek therapy; although sometimes that is the time when a person looks for help. Making the decision to meet with a therapist is a very personal one; and once embraced, it can be truly life-changing. Psychotherapy services are available for individuals, couples, and families.
What to expect during our initial meeting?
When we meet for the first time, we will discuss what brings you to therapy, what you would like to see happen in your life, and how we can work together to empower you to get there. Don’t worry about not knowing where to start. We will start somewhere and work on connecting it all as we go. In sessions, we create space to become “detectives,” observers, and problem solvers together; where we look at the path and the story… the challenges… the resources you have; and we identify even more resources within yourself you may not even be aware of. This is all a part of the process. Then, you continue practicing and utilizing these resources and insight in your daily life one day at a time. It is also part of the initial meeting, to complete a few brief forms where the practice policies are explained to you.
