Frequently Asked Questions
How can therapy help me?
A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for your presenting problems. Therapist are neutral so they are able to provide clinical insight and feedback that family members and friends cannot provide. If you benefit from therapy is also largely based on your participation and use of skills in and outside of therapy. Some ways that therapy can help you include:
• Improved self esteem
• Renewed identity
• Conflict resolution
• Better ways of coping with stress, anger, low mood and anxiety
• Improved communication and relationships
• Behavior modification
What happens in therapy?
Our first meeting will serve as an assessment or evaluation in which I collect information in order to decide if my services meet your needs. This is also a time for you to determine if treatment is right for you and your comfort level with me. If we are both in agreement that treatment would be beneficial further appointments will be scheduled. In the 2nd session you will be provided with a treatment plan and the frequency of treatment will be discussed. Therapy sessions are 50 minutes.
Does what we talk about in therapy remain confidential?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and therapist. In order for therapy to be successful there has to be a high level of trust, and confidentiality is upheld to condition trust. I will provide you with a written copy of my confidentiality disclosure agreement. Things discussed in our sessions with not be shared with anyone without your informed consent. If you request that information be shared with someone by law I will have to obtain written permission. There are limits to confidentiality enforced by state law and professional ethics such as:
• Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to the authorities, including Child Protection and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources.
• If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threated to harm another person.
