Therapy is a collaborative project. When a person starts therapy, it is often related to a situation and/or thoughts that are causing significant emotional and physical discomfort. As your therapist, I will work with you as a team to identify underlying thoughts and your specific beliefs and concerns. We can then discuss what specific actions can be taken to alleviate the situation, stressors, and effect on mood.
Success in therapy looks like when some of the following occur: 1. When a client begins to feel less anxious, less depressed, and less irritable. 2. When they are able to get better sleep, have experiences of increased motiviation, and feel more comfortable. 3. When a client has more energy, improved concentration, and is more engaged with others. 4. When they expierence a decrease in negative thoughts, and have a more positive outook.
Key components of the therapeutic relationship include building trust, having a positive rapport, and working as a team.
