How Long Will Therapy Take?
Each person has different reasons for deciding to seek out a therapist. The process can take anywhere from 2 or 3 sessions to several months and, in some cases people have remained in therapy for years. The important thing to know is that you are in control over how long you stay in therapy.
What is your Theoretical Orientation/Personal Philosophy?
I am an eclectic therapist. This means that, while I am familiar with all theoretical orientations, I have not chosen to work with one in particular with all clients. I tend to lean more towards Solution Focused work than Psychodynamic. My choice on how to work with a client is based on my discussions with that client and what I believe will be of most benefit to them. In the past few years, I have become more interested in the mind/body connection as well as The Power of Positive Attraction and Mindfulness. I see the work of a therapist and client as a collaboration. We will work together to get the desired results which are identified by the client in the first session.
Do You Prescribe Medication?
Marriage and Family Therapists are not physicians and our license does not authorize us to prescribe medication. If it is decided that a client would benefit from medication along with talk therapy, a referral to a Psychiatrist can be arranged
