The first few counseling sessions involve an evaluation of the client's needs and goals, from which I provide an initial treatment plan.
Over the course of the therapy process, I share psychological insights and analysis, offer clarity and perspective on the client's situation, give feedback and direction about how to make increasingly healthy choices, and provide support for the client to make those choices.
As with any effort to create lasting change, psychotherapy can require energy and time.
Psychotherapy can feel frustrating because we often cannot control the pace of change. On the path toward healing, clients may go through times of increased painful feelings and may experience unexpected and difficult life situations; this is a normal part of the process. Most people notice positive progress toward their goals if they are able to stick with therapy through those challenges.
