What is therapy like & other normal questions answered
So... How can therapy help me?
If you want to develop skills to improve relationships. If you simply want to understand yourself better; why you do and say certain things.
Would you like to deal with your anger, grief, depression, anxiety or stress differently? Would you like to develop better listening skills and overall communication skills? Want to boost your self-confidence?
There are so many benefits to psychotherapy. You can get support during difficult seasons of life, divorce, depression, relationship issues, anxiety, eating disorders, body image, stress, work troubles, problem-solving, past issues from your childhood, abuse, trauma, etc...
A therapist can be a great asset in your life when you feel you have nowhere else to turn. No one to talk to, no one who understands you, no one that you can truly be transparent and vulnerable and your true self with. Someone who won't judge you and will allow you to just share your feelings and provide the support you need to problem solve and strategize and learn coping skills to break free and breakthrough. A therapist will be a listening ear that can give a fresh perspective to a challenging situation and help guide you in the direction of a solution. If you are more comfortable being in your own home, sessions can also be done virtually.
Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and psychotherapist. You need to trust me with things that are pretty sensitive in nature, things that you probably would only share in my office. You will receive a confidential disclosure statement (Informed Consent). You can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone.
