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.
That said, it is common for our clients to attend weekly sessions for 3 to 6 months. Some people choose to meet less than that (just a few times), while others continue with us long-term (to continue to work on strengthening other areas of your life, mental health, and wellbeing). You will be in complete control of how long you work with us.
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. We tailor our therapeutic approach to your specific needs. That said, the following are common areas addressed in therapy:
Medication can be effective and is sometimes needed in conjunction with therapy. However, medication alone often does not solve all issues. Medication typically treats the symptoms. Our work together, however, is designed to explore more than just symptoms, including the root of the issue, dynamics between relationships, and teach you strategies to more easily attain your mental health goals.
That said, research has shown that medication can be helpful for many individuals for a variety of disorders. We will provide you with referrals to English-speaking medical psychiatrists if medication seems needed. We, however, do not prescribe medication ourselves.
Absolutely. And we encourage you to do so. Therapist-fit is extremely important.
