Every therapy session is developed to meet your unique, individual needs. Therapy sessions can be used to discuss the key issues and concerns in your life, to help with skill-building, to teach stress-reduction techniques, or to use the creative process to elicit insight or support integration. Therapy typically requires the therapist and client to commit to a series of weekly sessions, with each session lasting between 45 to 60 minutes. Individuals who are going through a particularly difficult challenge may request more time per session or more than one session per week. For therapy to be most effective you must be an active participant. Sometimes, I ask clients to work on specific skills in between therapy sessions to support their progress.
