What are some benefits of therapy?

Therapy has been shown to have benefits for individuals who take part in it.  Therapy often leads to a greater personal awareness and insight; significant reduction in feelings of distress; increased satisfaction in interpersonal relationships; increased skills for managing stress; problem resolutions; and progress towards treatment goals. However, there are no guarantees about outcomes or what will happen during the counseling process.

What can I expect to happen during the intake session?

So you've decided to start therapy? Great!  Welcome! During the first intake session, I review with the client(s) informed consent and HIPPA documents, which outline what one may expect from the therapeutic process, as well as his or her client rights. I also go over other documents that outline my policies; as well as a New Client Intake Questionnaire, which gives me a good idea of the client's history, and what treatment goals he or she would like my assistance with during therapy.
