What can I expect in a therapy session?
A session for adults and adolescents lasts 50 minutes. For children the session is generally 45 minutes. For therapy to “work,” you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the therapy session.
What kinds of people go to a therapist?
All kinds—children, teenagers, adults and families. The purpose of therapy is to help a person or family improve their overall satisfaction with their life. For some people, therapy gives them tools to help them deal with specific life changes such as teenagers leaving home, divorce, death, job loss, chronic illness, etc. For others, therapy is helpful for dealing with more long-term difficulties such as depression, anxiety or a more chronic form of mental illness.

Your therapist will help you to identify appropriate goals. During the course of therapy your goals may change. However, establishing a direction will help you get the most out of the experience.
