Healing happens in relationship.
You’re ready for healing and change. In therapy, healing happens when you process and make sense of what you went through within the safety and structure of a healthy, therapeutic relationship. When we meet we process together your thoughts and experiences in therapy, you experience what it’s like to be treated with respect and what it’s like to be listened to, heard, and understood. You learn to expect safe conversations and interactions where another person is present. These experiences in therapy translate into the expectations you bring to other relationships in your life. In other words the therapy relationship becomes a tool for us to use in helping you.
Let work together - at least once a week
In the beginning of therapy we meet together at least once a week so we have a chance to get to know each other and to build the trust needed to collaboratively work together. After the first couple of months we continue to meet at a minimum of weekly, so the therapy relationship can continue to grow and gain strength and develop as we do the deeper work that is needed to bring about the changes in your life that you are looking for. Meeting at least once every week provides enough intensity to do that and enough consistency to be safe and effective. And just as consistent work in any area of life creates results so consistent therapeutic work has a much higher potential to create the changes that you desire.
