Psychotherapy is intended to be a partnership. I encourage you to ask questions and challenge the topics that may come up that may not resonate with you. It is important that you do your own research so that you are best informed about your own wellbeing and treatment. I am here to support and provide you the best possible experience in psychotherapy. If there is any aspect of your psychotherapy that may make you uncomfortable, I ask that you please be open and honest about your experience and questions.
Although psychotherapy does have an atmosphere of support and encouragement, it is a place for you to be working towards certain goals. As such, once it is clear what you are struggling with, it is important to set goals for treatment. Goals for treatment are often set within the first three sessions and reviewed periodically. It is my job to make sure you are progressing towards your goals. I will do my very best to inform you of the benefits, risks and consequences that may come from seeking psychotherapy. It is not uncommon for symptoms to get worse before they get better. This often is normal. I will do my best to give you my best possible professional opinion about any distress you may experience.
