Therapy involves collaboration between you and your therapist. The first few sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs and your therapist’s fit to those needs. Together, you and your therapist can both decide if the therapist is the best person to provide services to you or your child. It may be that the therapist will refer you to other providers for separate or additional care.
The benefits of therapy may include emotional exploration, personal insight and growth, improved understanding of problems, improved personal relationships, relief from distress, and/or acquisition of skills to make positive changes in your life. Yet, your therapist does not have all of the answers to life’s difficulties and cannot guarantee a specific outcome for you. However, your therapist will work with you to try to achieve a result that is right for you.
