What type of Therapy do you practice?
We’ll meet you where you are…
If we know one thing – finding a good therapist can be tough. We’ve been there. We find that people often feel uncomfortable and nervous seeking therapy. Therapy is incredibly vulnerable and you’re telling a complete stranger things that you’ve potentially never told anyone else. That’s pretty bold. We value that openness and know that this is not an easy process for anyone. That’s why we try to make the transition into therapy seamless so that you feel like you know what you’re walking into. Because of that we offer a free 15 minute consultation to meet the therapist of your choice and see it they feel like the right fit for you before completely diving in.
Though people seek therapy for an array of reasons, we find that people tend to seek out therapy when:
- They need help navigating through a challenge
- Experiencing distress
- Consumed with unwanted thoughts
- Have tried other approaches on their own
- Needing a neutral party to talk things through
- Healing from an experience
- Information from an expert on topics like sex or relationship dynamics
We see ourselves as guides through your journey. We team up with you, identify your concerns and use approaches we know to be effective in working with your unique situation.
HOW DO YOU APPROACH THERAPY
Getting to know you…
The first session is all about discussing what brought you to therapy and why now is the right time to seek therapy. We want to understand where things began and how you got to the current place. During this session we do a lot of listening and asking a ton of questions about you. We want to fully understand your situation to help us create a therapy plan tailored to your needs.
Understanding your past…
If helpful, the second session is about collecting more history regarding your upbringing, sexual history and relationship history. Our goal is to understand you in context and figure out the core of what is happening. It’s critical to understand where we are coming from to help guide where we are going. We want therapy with us to create life long impacts for you, not just be a quick band-aid.
Starting your journey…
Starting in the third session we begin your journey. Now that the therapist has a better assessment of the situation they will be able to help you set up a clear game plan for moving forward. “When therapy is done what would you hope to have had accomplished?” This allows for you and the therapist to be on the same page with what you’ll be working on and how you’ll know that you’ve arrived in the place you want to be.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
