How Does Counseling Help? Counseling
can help you identify and strengthen your positive qualities, provide
support during transition, help you understand and break negative
patterns, help you gain perspective on a situation, solve a problem or
heal from emotional wounds or upsetting situations. Counseling can also
help you to become more aware of your own emotions, attitudes and
behavioral patterns and how they influence your interactions. In all,
Counseling can help you grow into a stronger individual.
Do I need therapy? The
fact that you are considering reaching out for help, is a sign that you
could probably benefit from meeting with a professional. If you feel
that you are trapped in a cycle of negative emotions, behaviors,
relationships and/or thoughts you could benefit from therapy. During
your first session you and your therapist will identify these and set
goals to overcome them.

What Can I expect in my first Visit? We
understand that you are probably feeling some apprehension about your
first session and we will do all we can to make you feel comfortable and
relaxed. Your first session is a good chance for you to get to know
your therapist and make sure he/she is a "good fit" for you. Your
therapist will ask you questions to become acquainted with you. He or
she will also ask you questions regarding why you chose to come to
counseling, what your goals are, and other information about your
emotional, behavioral and relationship history.
How Long Does Counseling Take? How
long counseling will take depends on the individual and their specific
situation. Some people see improvement in as little as a few
sessions, others may continue for months, often with increased periods
of time between appointments. All sessions are 50 minutes long.
We recommend that you follow through with counseling
until you have accomplished the goals that you and your counselor discussed
at the beginning. If you find at any time that you would like to terminate
your counseling we do recommend that you schedule at least one last appointment
to discuss your progress and how to maintain it in the future.
Is therapy confidential? All
client-therapist conversations are private and confidential. It is also
confidential information that a person is even meeting with a
counselor. Information is never disclosed without written permission.
There are some exceptions to this: suspected child abuse or dependent
adult or elder abuse, if a client is threatening serious bodily harm to
another person or if a client intends to harm himself or herself.
