Getting the Most Out of Counseling

Therapy is a collaborative process between patient and counselor. As with any relationship, your best chance for success depends on the confidence and trust you place in your therapist. It’s important to be an active participant in your sessions, and don’t rush the process. It can take time to understand underlying issues and make progress, but when done right, it can make a world of difference.

During your initial consultation your therapist will ask you questions about your family history, your medical and psychological history, your current situation and what prompted you to contact us. This allows your therapist to do a comprehensive, individualized evaluation so that he or she can make recommendations regarding your care.
