Adult life consists of alternating periods of stability and transition.
Whatever the circumstances, navigating life transitions can be difficult, presenting us with new problems and demanding us to respond in new ways. Adults may pursue individual therapy to address major life changes and others may seek help in managing mental health conditions, such as depressive disorders or trauma-related disorders. Whatever the impetus, treatment will challenge you to change your approach and learn how to cope with your stressors in a different way.
Treatment begins by building rapport and forming a collaborative therapeutic relationship with my clients. While many clients improve after 10-20 sessions of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, determining the length of treatment is a collaborative process that depends on the client’s goals and cause and nature of presenting problems. Factors associated with length of treatment often include the severity of illness, personality, and level of support.
