How long do therapy sessions last?
Most sessions are conducted within a 45-minute “therapy hours”. However, sessions can be extended depending on the needs of the patient.
What can I expect during my first session?
During your first session, we aim to gain a thorough understanding of your presenting problems and any relevant personal history that may be contributing to these difficulties. Having an comprehensive understanding of these elements allows the therapist to provide the most effective treatment. The therapist will ask a wide range of questions and may ask you to complete questionnaires. The first therapy session gives you an opportunity to express what goals you would like to achieve by coming to therapy. In addition, the therapist will answer any questions you may have about therapy. There are also a number of consent forms to be read and completed during the first session to ensure that you have been made aware of what treatment involves and understand our privacy and confidentiality policies.
What is confidentiality?
Confidentiality is the privileged information between client and counselor. Generally speaking, what you say in counseling is strictly confidential. Confidentiality is only broken in specific circumstances, such as if you threaten to hurt yourself or others and there’s reason to believe those threats will be acted upon, suspected elder abuse or child abuse, or if records are subpoenaed by a judge.
How often do I see my therapist?
Typically, patients are seen either weekly or biweekly.
