Before beginning psychotherapy, most patients wonder, “Will this counseling really help me with my problems?” Research shows that many factors affect whether treatment is successful, including the severity of the problem(s) being treated, the patient’s belief that the counseling will work and the skill level of the therapist.
However, research over the past fifty years has demonstrated that one factor — more than any other — is associated with successful treatment: the quality of the relationship between the therapist and the patient. www.family-institute.org
There is no specific time frame for therapy. My goal is to give you effective tools to use in your daily life to help you feel better as soon as possible. Some people can resolve their issues in a few months while others require longer-term treatment.
We do discuss in detail what you are seeking in terms of therapy, as it is different for each individual. The time is determined by several factors that we will address these. Some people are able to resolve issues in a shorter time and, for others, the process is longer.
