Frequently Asked Questions

 

How does therapy work?
Therapy is like working out. We know that it takes maintaining and going to the gym on a

routine basis for the best results. 

How do I know if I need therapy?
There is stigma to therapy and many myths out there...

  • Therapy doesn’t work.

  • Therapy is not for me–it’s for people with serious mental health issues.

  • Talking to someone about my problems won’t help me.

  • I can fix the problem myself.

  • Once I start going to therapy, I’ll have to go forever.

​                  Absolutely not.

 

How will I know if I’m making progress?
I recommend making a list of short- and long-term goals with your therapist in the first few weeks. It may be helpful to track how you feel each day and how you cope with difficult situations. After some time has passed, check the list and see if you’re closer to reaching any of your goals. Review your progress with your therapist. Improvement won’t happen overnight, but you should see some change, even if it’s just a better understanding of your own thoughts and feelings. It is also helpful to learn everything you can about your diagnosis.

If, after some time, you don’t begin to feel some relief, you should consider changing therapists. You have a right to have the best treatment possible, and you can feel better.

What if I don't like it?
Scheduling a free phone consultation will give you more of an idea of what to expect and if I am the perfect fit for you. It's completely okay to book a first appointment and not like it. It's important to find a therapist that fits for YOU!

So what next?

What do YOU need?

A personal trainer creates an effective training program

to get your body in shape, designed just for you. Your trainer

teaches you proper form for each exercise to optimize results

and they make it clear that change comes from routine daily effort.

The time you spend with a personal trainer is not the cure, but

rather it’s the combined effort of those sessions plus the work you

do outside of sessions which get results.
