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 from a professional have made an important first step towards improving their condition. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.

What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

The difference involves bringing your concerns to a person who has the training and experience to offer you an understanding of your situation, and appropriate treatment. This could be psychotherapy, medications, or a combination of the two. As opposed to family/friends, mental health professionals are trained to be in highly emotional situations and provide a neutral, calm environment.

Why shouldn’t I just take medication?

Medication is often a highly effective treatment and can be used in conjunction with psychotherapy.

How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

Because each person has different issues and goals , it 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 for treatment depends many factors.
