I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Will I be seen as weak?

It takes courage to know you need help and to reach out and ask for it. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.

What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, help you gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. A friend or family member doesn't have the training and experience a professional has. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, a therapist is able to provide the space and safety for you to express those emotions.

Why shouldn’t I just take medication?

Medication can be very effective in some cases, but alone, it does not always solve the issue. Sometimes medication is needed in conjunction with counseling. Our work together is designed to explore and unpack the problems you are experiencing and expand on your strengths that can help you accomplish your personal goals.

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

Since each person has different issues and struggles, our sessions will depend on the individual goals. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs. Showing up to your appointments is the first step; we figure out the direction of the work together.

How long will it take?

Unfortunately, this is not an easy answer to give. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of counseling depends on multiple factors. Your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the elements that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.
