Therapy is an intimate process. When you enter the process, it is crucial that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. Whether you are presenting with anxiety, depression, postpartum issues or issues of family origin, you must feel trust toward your therapist to be able to disclose the deeply personal information you have to share.
I encourage my clients to check in with me and let me know how they are feeling. Therapy should be a collaborative process. As you feel better, the frequency of sessions you attend should decrease in an effort to prepare you for depending more on the tools that therapy has provided you.
When my clients leave my office they know that if they ever need to come back for one or two sessions to work through a specific issue, I am there for them. The goal of therapy should be to strengthen your self-reliance, and not to create dependence on the therapist.
Are you tired, overworked, lacking patience?
Do you feel like every day is a bad episode of groundhog day?
Are you experiencing an increase in conflict with family or friends?
Have you noticed an increase in unhealthy behaviors?
Do you feel a general sense of apathy or conversely, anxiety?
We are currently living in a society that moves at lightning speed. Many times it can feel like there simply aren't enough hours in the day to accomplish all of the tasks our brain can list for us to do. Unfortunately, we leave ourselves off of our list when, as cliche as it sounds, we should be on the top of it. My goal is to help you achieve the balance you truly deserve.
