I’ve never been to therapy before. 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 know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. We will work together to explore and identify your strengths and implement them to address the challenges you are facing. 

Why shouldn’t I just take medication?

Medication can be effective but it alone cannot solve all issues. Sometimes medication is needed in conjunction with counselling. Please note psychologists do not prescribe medication. Our work together is designed to explore and unpack the concerns you are experiencing and identify strategies that can help intrapersonally and interpersonally. 

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

Because each person has different concerns and goals for counselling, 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 counselling can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal growth, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counselling.

I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication both in and out of therapy sessions will be crucial to your success.
