Frequently Asked Questions

How can therapy help me?

Therapy can help you in many aspects of your life. Some things therapy can help with:

  • learn healthy ways of coping with stressors
  • identify past hurts and wounds that are impacting your life
  • heal from past trauma
  • create healthy boundaries
  • explore and challenge negative thought patterns that impact your ability to function
  • decrease and better manage depression and anxiety symptoms
Will you give me advice?

You have enough people in your life ready and willing to give you advice (whether you want it or not). Your therapist is here to listen to you and help you as you discover the answers that are right for you and your life. 

I don’t feel like I have a major problem. Can I still benefit from therapy?

Absolutely! Taking a proactive approach to your mental health can greatly benefit your life. Imagine learning how to deal with a problem before it occurs! Therapy can teach you many life skills that can help you in your relationships and help you live your most authentic life.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good match for me?

Many therapists offer free phone consultations so they can answer any questions you have and determine if they are a good fit for your presenting problem. Ask questions about their experience with the issues you’re facing, how they help people in your situation, what is their approach to therapy. A key indicator of success in therapy is the therapeutic relationship. It’s important to choose a therapist you feel comfortable with and can connect with. 

Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?

Yes, but there are exceptions. Laws and ethics prohibit a therapist from even disclosing that you are a client without your prior written consent. However, confidentiality may be broken when there is a threat to harm yourself or others, when there is reason to believe children, elders, or persons with disabilities are being abused, and in cases when the court compels the mental health professional to testify and break confidentiality. 

How long will therapy take? When will I start to feel better?

There is no way to predict how many sessions you will need in order to feel better. Therapy is a very individualized process, so the length of the time is dependent on your goals, the issues you’re facing, and your motivation, readiness, and ability to use the skills you’re learning outside of session.
