About Counseling

What happens in first sessions

A first session will focus on the reasons you have decided to begin counseling. There is no need to detail the history of your life, unless that feels important for you to do. You can share what feels most important to share that day. The therapist will ask questions about your experience presently and some questions about experiences in your past that may be relevant. The therapist will also ask some intake questions in the course of the conversation, so that they can get a feel for your experience, safety, resources and struggle. There will be about 5 minutes of paperwork to complete as well. All sessions ends at 45 minute mark to allow time in the session for payment and scheduling.

Subsequent sessions

Within a few sessions you will likely work with your therapist to come up with a plan for therapy. This plan includes what you see as the issues you want to work on, what a successful outcome would be and how you will know that you have completed your goals for counseling on these issues.

Once you have a therapy plan, you will begin to work on the plan with your therapist. Generally, your therapist will check in on how you feel the progress on your goals has been periodically. This is a time for you to offer feedback about the therapeutic process and amend your therapy plan if you feel like your goals have shifted as you changed in therapy.

Counseling sessions will combine skill building and tangible action steps with expanding your generalized tolerance for feeling strong emotions. This allows for internal and external work to co-create your process. The therapist will help you track where you are making progress in both areas, as it is not always easy to see the progress you are making when you are in the work.
