What to Expect in Therapy
Right now, all of our sessions are through a secure telehealth platform, as we practice community care with physical distancing. All of our therapists receive training in providing tele-therapy at the start of their work with us and are experienced in using this format. We realize that video sessions may not be the preferred way to participate in therapy for many, while others find it more convenient. We look forward to the time we’ll be able to return to offering both types of sessions.
For a lot of people showing or expressing emotion in front of a new person is a little scary and just know that this is normal. During your first two to three sessions you’ll be getting to know your therapist and building your new relationship. In the first session your therapist will be asking clarifying questions about your intake forms that you complete online before the appointment and you can ask them questions too. You’ll identify some of your goals and talk about options for meeting those. Your input about what you’d like to happen in your appointments is important to us , so feel free to share anything you might have liked about any past therapy sessions you’ve had. As we move forward in therapy,
you can also share what is helpful and what isn’t. This process is individualized for your needs and personality.
Therapy is a collaborative process. Our time together in the office is important, but personal work outside of the session enables our transformative discussions to “stick”. You deserve to make an investment in yourself!
