They may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the assessments given. In most situations one or two appointments are scheduled for testing and a follow up appointment is scheduled to review the results. We can provide you with a copy of the results or contact your current doctor concerning the results.

CONFIDENTIALITY

Confidentiality is important to the counseling process. The law protects the relationship between a client and counselor and information cannot be disclosed to outside parties without written permission.

ACCOMODATING

We work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues and personalize the therapy according to individual needs.

INVEST IN YOUR EMOTIONAL HEALTH

Remember that investing in your personal and emotional health is always a good idea. Mental or emotional problems hurt your productivity, decrease your energy and stifle your creativity. All of these are critical to keeping your job or saving your relationships in these tough times.

NOT EXCLUSIVE

The counseling process is not exclusive for people experiencing extreme pain. In fact, clients who attend counseling for longer periods of time are achievers and prolific citizens who strongly rely on the value of counseling and how it can motivate you to develop and strengthen yourself.

HARDSHIP IS APART OF THE CYCLE

It is but part of the human life cycle to come across hardships as well as tranquility. We believe that everyone has a time in their life where they can benefit from counseling services.

NOT EXCLUSIVE TO MENTAL PROBLEMS

Therapy is not intended primarily for individuals who suffer from severe mental problems. Though these individuals can benefit from seeing a counselor, they are by no means the only ones. Individuals who are high-functioning and relatively well-adjusted often attend counseling better understand themselves and escape the various unwanted habits. In reality, there are few individuals who could not benefit from counseling and gaining a better understanding of their own mind and personality. Many individuals with fairly subtle issues use counseling to improve intimate relationships and quality of life, as well as to meet personal goals.

CHANGE COMES FROM THE CLIENT

The responsibility for true personal change and growth lies primarily with the client. The therapist’s primary role is to facilitate the client’s intimate examination of himself. The client and therapist work closely to understand how certain personality traits were developed, and learn to change or adjust those patterns. In order for counseling to produce lasting growth it is necessary to cooperate with the therapist and be dedicated to change.

RESEARCH PROVES COUNSELING WORKS

It is not easy to prove the progress and results of counseling, however there is empirical research that supports the efficacy of counseling. Mental health professionals have documented many cases where emotional distress, medical issues and the quality of life were resolved through the counseling process. The best way for a client to evaluate the effectiveness of therapy is to try a few sessions and decide for yourself.

TIME

For most people seeking counseling the process will last a few months to one or two years. In long term therapy the approach is less structured and the goal is to dig deep into feelings and behaviors. Short-term therapy can last as few as 6 weeks but is more appropriate for specific issues such as a recent career change or location change, or giving up a bad habit. The most common treatment is once a week for 45 minutes. This does vary based on the client and needs. Therapy can be twice a week or twice a month, usually more frequent at the beginning of therapy.

HARD WORK

Contrary to many beliefs counseling includes hard work. Anyone who is able and willing to examine himself honestly and openly in the context of therapy will likely begin to see benefits of counseling very early in the treatment process.
