How will I know if you are the right therapist for me?
A therapist should make you feel safe and comfortable within the space so as to allow for open sharing. I generally like to use the first two to three sessions to get to know you and use it as a opportunity for you to see if you are comfortable with me and if we will be able able to work together.
How long will it take?
The length of therapy varies greatly depending on the person and the type of difficulties being experienced. Once an assessment has been conducted within the first two to three sessions we will collaboratively decide on a treatment plan, as well as the proposed number and frequency of sessions.
How long is a therapy session?
A therapy session is usually 50 minutes.
