What Can I Get From Therapy?

Individual Therapy

Anyone can benefit from individual therapy! A session of individual therapy is usually 45 minutes. People can meet with their therapist as often as they like. Typically, most people choose once a week. However, some people request more during particular times of stress. Other times, after someone has been in therapy for a period of time, they choose to come less often for “tune up” sessions to make sure they maintain the progress they have made. What works best for you is something that you can discuss directly with your therapist.

Couples/Family Therapy

Couples or Family Sessions usually last 1 hour (more people requires more time!). These sessions are used to discover and address what is getting in the way of families or couples functioning in the way the parties involved want. Families or couples meet with their therapist as often as makes sense for them. Determine the recommended rate of treatment in collaboration with your therapist.

Life Coaching

People often seek life coaching when they feel stuck or in a rut in a particular area of their life or in general. They may or may not know what is getting in the way and would benefit from having an objective person to help guide them and put them back on a path to happiness. These sessions are typically 45 minutes in length. How often they occur should be decided in collaboration with your therapist.

Job Coaching

Feeling stuck in your current position and looking to make a change? Wanting to switch careers but not sure how or to what? Been out of the workforce for a period of time and feeling uncertain about the process of returning to work? Having difficulties with co-workers or your boss? Job coaching can help you with these and a variety of other issues related to employment. Sessions are typically 45 minutes, once per week. How often and when these sessions occur should be decided in collaboration with your therapist.
