How I do Counseling
I’ve been a therapist for about 10 years, and I’ve learned that it’s not about providing answers for people. It’s about providing a space for people to feel safe enough to explore, reflect, and engage with thoughts they’ve been avoiding. I do this through humility, rapport, and mutual respect for your goals.
What to Expect
Sessions are about an hour long. Our initial session aims to get to know you and the heart of your issues. Often, people come to counseling when overwhelmed and at the end of their rope. You lead the way. We talk about what’s on your mind and what’s going on. As you progress in counseling, you will become more comfortable with sharing your inner thoughts and where we will address the core of your issues.
Frequency & Duration
How often and how long you attend counseling depends on your life’s difficulty. Typically, the larger your stressors, the more frequently we will meet and for a more extended period. Some patients attend counseling for a few sessions, and others for years.
