I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own.
People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone benefits from a coach now and then. I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.
What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
My role is to help you understand what you want for yourself, quite apart from what others may want for you. I can help you approach your situation in a new way – I’ll listen to you without judgment or expectations, help you listen to yourself differently, gain different perspectives, and develop new skills – all in a confidential relationship.
Why shouldn’t I just take medication?
Medication can be effective to help manage intense emotional states but it alone cannot change behavior. If we decide that medication might be useful for your treatment, we will collaborate with your medical provider to best meet your needs.
How does it work? What is a session like?
We talk. During a 45- or 6o-minute session, I listen. When I have something to say, I say it. We explore. Understanding emerges.
How long will it take?
Everyone’s circumstances are unique and the length of time counseling can take to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.
I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication will be crucial to your success.
