Some clients come in for therapy knowing they are experiencing depression, anxiety, or relationship issues. Those issues can certainly be addressed in individual therapy. Other clients come feeling “stuck” and are unsure of what the problem is. Therapy can help identify the problem and work to find movement and growth again in life.
Some areas individual therapy can address:
- Relationship issues
- ADHD (Problems with attention & organization)
- Dealing with anger & conflict
- Adjustment to stressors
- Chronic health concerns (chronic pain etc.)
- Grief/ Bereavement
In our practice, we use a variety of treatment modalities to help our patients. Some of these are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialetical Behavioral Therapy.
Question most frequently heard: “It is my first time coming to therapy. What do I do, and what will happen when I come in?”
Answer: Coming to therapy for the first time can be anxiety provoking. The process of finding a therapist is usually the hardest part. We will walk you through the process each step of the way. Once we have scheduled the first session, you will come in, complete some initial paperwork. Then we will spend the first few minutes of the session talking about confidentiality and how therapy works. The rest of the first session will be spent discussing what is occuring currently that brings you into therapy and any related history. You do not need to feel pressured to share every detail of your past in the first session! By the end of the initial session, we will give you clear feedback about what we think would be most helpful and together we will make a plan. Most clients report feeling significantly less nervous after they leave their first session. The frequency and duration of therapy varies and we will discuss this upfront and ongoing.
Second most frequently asked question: “What will I pay for therapy?”
Answer: This varies widely according to your insurance and services provided. Fees range from $80-$130 or a copay if using insurance. Please inquire when scheduling.
