Your decision to seek our services was undoubtedly a serious one arrived at after considerable thought. Whether you were referred to us by your medical provider, urged to seek counseling by family or friends, or came because of problems and feelings only you know about, the decision to come here was yours. We congratulate you on taking this important step forward on your path to mental health recovery and are honored that you are considering our clinic as your service provider.
Psychotherapy is not easily described in general statements. It varies depending on the personalities of the therapist and client, and the particular problems you bring forward. There are many different methods your therapist may use to deal with the problems that you hope to address. Psychotherapy is not like a medical doctor visit. Instead, it calls for a very active effort on your part. In order for the therapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things you talk about both during sessions and at home.
Our first few sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs. By the end of the evaluation, your therapist will be able to offer you some first impressions of what the work will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue with therapy. You should evaluate this information along with your own opinions of whether you feel comfortable working with your therapist.
Therapy involves a large commitment of time, money, and energy, so you should be very careful about the therapist you select. If you have questions about any procedures, you should discuss them whenever they arise. If your doubts persist, your therapist will be happy to help you set up a meeting with another mental health professional for a second opinion.
