What will we do? First of all we will have to figure out what the problem is exactly. Often therapy is a messy and sometimes painful process of feeling expression, problem solving, and learning new ideas for thinking and behavior. We will work to create a new narrative for you that reflects your healing, and growth. The work of therapy starts with receiving support, building trust and then seems to require a certain amount of courage, grit, and resolve. When your journey is over, and you have fresh confidence that you have what is takes to handle life's challenges, you get to enjoy a NEW YOU-stronger and more resilient. A happier you- free to build the future you're dreaming of. Are you ready for this?
A study in the Journal of Counseling and Psychology found that most people feel better within 7-10 visits. In a different study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, they found that 88% of people who experienced therapy reported improvements after just one session. Isn't that amazing? Whether you benefit from 1 or 100 sessions, what do you have to lose? I would love to meet you so we can find out what it will take so that you can feel better and begin to live the life you want!
If you're eating or sleeping more than usual, withdrawing from family or friends, or just feeling "off", counseling can help. Other reasons you might consider Breakthrough Counseling could be that you are using alcohol, drugs, food, or sex to cope; feeling like your emotions are out of control, you've lost someone or something important to you, something traumatic happened, or you just cant do the things you like.
COVID UPDATE: Currently I am offering video therapy using the online platform Doxy.me and phone sessions. Starting 9-7-2021, I am opening my office and requiring masks while in the building and during session in an effort to stay safe from the most recent threat of the Delta Variant. If you haven’t gotten your COVID vaccination yet, now is a good time! I am committed to following CDC guidelines for safety during the Pandemic as well as your safety while you find the courage and strength to heal and meet your goals for therapy. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you!
