Q: What is therapy for college students like?
A: Therapy consists of 50 minute long weekly or biweekly sessions. During the sessions the therapist will be a supportive listener as the client breaks down current upsets at their own pace. The therapist will provide insight and challenge the client to reflect on unhelpful ways of communicating and acting that are causing distress. Often times, the therapist leads clients through awareness and mindfulness exercises for additional felt relief. Goals and progress are reflected on regularly to provide acknowledgement, encouragement, and validation.
Q: How long do I need to be in therapy?
A: The length of therapy is very dependent on the client and their individual needs and circumstances. Some clients find relief after just a few months of therapy and others take a bit longer. The pace and length of therapy is really up to the client's desire and ability to implement learned tools/understandings in their personal lives.
Q: How do I know if therapy for college students will work for me?
A: While no therapist can make guarantees, if a client shows up to sessions and chooses to show up for themselves, most clients find relief and start to feel better. Many of today's solutions for healing anxiety are one-size-fits-all, leading so many to feel dependent on their therapist or like they're not making any real progress. I know that your circumstances are unique, so every step is tailored to you and always with your end goals in mind.
Q: How do we get started?
A: Reach out by sending a message, emailing, or calling. We will arrange a quick 15 minute phone chat. Our conversation will consist of you sharing a little about what is going on and me answering any questions you may have. We will both have a chance to decide if we are a good fit. Then, I will get some general information so I can email you a few forms to fill out and sign before our first session. therapy near me for anxiety
