The Therapy Process: Therapy is a collaborative process where you and your Counselor will work together on equal footing to achieve goals that you define. This means that you will follow a defined process supported by scientific evidence, where you and your Counselor have specific rights and responsibilities. Therapy generally shows positive outcomes for individuals who follow the process. Better outcomes are often associated with a good relationship between a client and their Counselor. To foster the best possible relationship, it is important you understand as much about the process before deciding to commit.
Therapy begins with the intake process. First, you will review your Counselor’s policies and procedures, talk about fees, identify emergency contacts, and decide if you want health insurance to pay your fees depending on your plan's benefits. Second, you will discuss what to expect during therapy, including the type of therapy, the length of treatment, and the risks and benefits. Third, you will form a treatment plan, including the type of therapy, how often you will attend therapy, your short- and long-term goals, and the steps you will take to achieve them. Over time, you and your Counselor may edit your treatment plan to be sure it describes your goals and steps you need to take. After intake, you will attend regular therapy sessions at your Counselor's office or through video, called telehealth. Participation in therapy is voluntary - you can stop at any time. At some point, you will achieve your goals. At this time, you will review your progress, identify supports that will help you maintain your progress, and discuss how to return to therapy if you need it in the future.
Goals of Therapy: Counseling is a process whereby the Counselor helps you to help yourself with the problems you are experiencing. Together, you and the Counselor assess your problems and establish goals for counseling. Your Counselor will not make decisions for you but will facilitate you reaching your goal. Counseling may be beneficial for most people while at the same time there are risks. The risks may include the experience of intense feelings, which may include sadness, anger, fear, guilt, or anxiety. It is important to remember that these feelings may be natural and normal part of the counseling process.
The Process of Therapy/Evaluation and Scope of Practice: Therapy can affect you in many ways. Resolving the concerns, you came in for will take effort on your part, and we want you to be open and honest. We may talk about unpleasant events which may cause you discomfort and may challenge some of your ways of thinking. While we expect change, the outcome is not guaranteed. Your Counselor is likely to draw on various psychological approaches. These approaches may include, cognitive-behavioral, cognitive, solution focused, psychodynamic, interpersonal, person-centered, existential, system/family, developmental (adult, child, family), humanistic or psychoeducational. We do not prescribe drugs.
Description of Therapy Sessions: Individual sessions are scheduled for 45-60 minutes unless otherwise indicated. Couples and family therapy sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes. To ensure the consistency and momentum necessary for change, we recommend the client to make a commitment to weekly sessions. Typically, we recommend at least 3-6 months of treatment. The exception to a weekly treatment schedule occurs when we are tapering down sessions in preparation to end treatment in which case, we may meet biweekly for the last 1-2 months. Otherwise, treatment consists of once per week. Consultation and more specific, targeted individual or family coaching services may be short-term and less frequent than treatment services.
Length of Counseling: Each client will have different issues to address in counseling so there is no set number of sessions you will need to attend. You and your Counselor will decide as you progress how often you should attend counseling. Termination of counseling may happen at any time and may be ended by you or your Counselor. If you are ready to terminate therapy, please allow at least one session so we can have closure.
