How do you know if it’s really right for you or your family?
Let me ask you this…
Do you want to be empowered to rewrite your personal narrative?
Do you want to change negative thought patterns?
Do you want to break free from the labels society has placed on you?
Do you want to restore or repair your relationship with yourself or others?
Or do you just want a candid conversation with a compassionate person who is trained to listen?
If you answered yes to any of these, then counseling is absolutely right for you. And empowerment is just a phone call or email away.
While we strive for a positive outcome, a true professional therapist will never guarantee results. And the reason is simple: the breakthroughs and transformation will only come from within your mind and heart, in your own time. Sometimes when beginning therapy we are stirring up old issues and past hurts, muddying once-clear waters. Things may feel a little worse before they begin to get better. This is normal.
With that said. . . you can expect to walk away from our sessions feeling in some way comforted, validated, empowered, and most importantly, prepared to stand up tall and face the world.
Here are some important questions to ask yourself and your therapist when looking for the right therapist for you:
What are counseling goals and how do you set them?
What does success in counseling look like?
What can I expect in a typical session?
How long is each session?
How do I prepare for my very first session?
Will I really feel safe and comfortable during the session?
