What to Expect
Psychotherapy in general is defined by a professional relationship with specific goals in mind. Some people may have well-defined goals for seeking therapy, yet others may be unspecified or generalized.
As a therapist, I assist in clarifying your goals so that your experience is positive and productive and leads towards emotional health.
People have different motivation for coming into therapy; they vary from relationship difficulties, anger, abandonment, anxiety or difficulties coping with specific family issues. Sometimes, they don’t even know what’s bothering them, they just don’t feel themselves; they are experiencing psychological pain.
My goal is to challenge your patterns of thinking and behavior with the ultimate goal of personal and emotional growth.
It is not uncommon for clients to feel nervous and anxious when coming in for the therapy. In my years of practice, I have had clients who have expressed relief, and gratitude for the experience and have felt at ease after the initial session.
What You Should Know about Confidentiality in Therapy
I will treat what you tell me with great care. My professional ethics, values and moral matters and the law of this state prevent me from telling anyone else what you tell me unless you give me written permission.These rules and laws supports and protects what we talk about.
What I CAN'T keep confidential is suspected child abuse, or dependent adult abuse,a client threatening serious bodily harm to another person(s) and finally if a client intends to harm himself or herself. Aside from those limitation mentioned, therapy is strictly confidential.
