Since counseling is specifically tailored to the individual, each client's experience is different. But, traditionally we begin with building a therapeutic relationship and exploring how you would like to benefit from therapy. From there, we work at your pace to pinpoint challenges and take steps toward your goals. Once you have seen the changes and improvement in your life, we discuss scaling back sessions at your comfort level until we conclude our time together.
The length of time in counseling varies depending on the person. Many clients are in therapy for a brief period of time- just long enough to learn, practice and integrate new skills. But, it is not uncommon for the therapeutic process to last longer for some clients, and if that is the case, we will work together to discuss the course of our work together.
My foundational orientation is in Action & Commitment Therapy, a dynamic approach that integrates your values, awareness of thoughts, and concrete action steps to make healthy, meaningful changes in your life. For couples, I use the Gottman Method to help couples strengthen their marriage in areas like conflict management, friendship, and shared meaning. I integrate additional treatment approaches as needed depending on what eac client needs and is open to.
If you find that you don't like counseling, it is totally ok and it is certainly not uncommon. I facilitate an open and non-judgmental atmosphere so that we can discuss your experience. If it relates to the process of counseling, we can explore this and decide together what adjustments we can make to our work together to make the experience more comfortable. If it is about our fit as therapist and client, we can also explore adjustments. In instances where we are unable to find our stride, I will make it a priority to connect you with options for continued care that may be a better fit.
