The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. – Socrates
A Collaborative Approach
Our brand of therapy is always client-centered and collaborative. We strive to create a safe, empowering environment for each of our individuals that is centered on their strengths and potentials. Through facilitating change and setting goals, we will work towards better understanding yourself and improving your quality of life. Our work goes beyond conversation – we often incorporate art, play, music, writing, body awareness, and a combination of various therapies. All of our interactions will be held in strict confidence.
You are unique and deserve to be seen and heard with kindness and compassion.
What to Expect
Begin your journey to your next best self by contacting us. For your first appointment, we will go over certain questions about you and your life so that we may make an initial assessment of your situation. Some of these questions will address your reason for seeking services, your personal history and current situation, your symptoms, and what our goals are. This may vary if you are a minor, or are accompanying a minor. The first session is about fifty to sixty minutes long. It is important to discuss what has motivated you to come in and what your expectations are. Your one-on-one sessions will always be individually paced – we will work together at whatever speed is most comfortable for you. Typically, sessions are weekly; however, we will determine the duration and frequency of your journey based on what fits best with your needs. Some people stay in therapy for a few sessions; others stay for years. Either way, your wants, needs, and progress are of utmost importance for our time together. In all forms of therapy, treatment is most effective when the client is motivated to change. Therefore, it is important to keep in mind that some people may benefit more than others, and some may spend shorter times in therapy than others.
