I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. You already have some strengths that you’ve used before, that for whatever reason isn’t working right now. Perhaps this problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths. In our work together, I’ll help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now.
What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
Why shouldn’t I just take medication?
Medication alone cannot solve all issues. What medication does is treat the symptoms. Our work together is designed to explore the root of the issue, dig deep into your behavior and teach strategies that can help you accomplish your personal and/or relational goals.
Medication can be effective and is sometimes needed in conjunction with therapy.
How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.
My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?
If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with me, I would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, I could work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.
What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of psychotherapy that is used to help people heal from traumatic experiences. It is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, their brains become stuck in a state of “fight or flight,” and that EMDR can help them to process the trauma and move on.
During EMDR, the client is asked to focus on a traumatic memory while they move their eyes from side to side. The therapist will also often use other forms of stimulation, such as tapping or audio recordings, to help the client to process the memory.
EMDR has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. It is a relatively new treatment, but it has quickly become one of the most popular forms of psychotherapy.
If you are interested in learning more about EMDR, you can talk to your therapist or find a therapist who specializes in EMDR. You can also find more information on the EMDR International Association website.
Here are some of the benefits of EMDR therapy:
- It can help people to heal from trauma and PTSD symptoms.
- It is a relatively short-term therapy, with most people seeing results after 8-12 sessions.
- It is a well-researched therapy with a proven track record of success.
- It can be used to treat a variety of mental health conditions.
If you are considering EMDR therapy, it is important to find a qualified therapist who can help you to safely and effectively process your trauma.
