Treatment   

Treatment is a planned, systematic way of learning about yourself and how you interact with the world.

  • The specific goals of treatment you will receive will be worked out between you and your therapist. 
  • The focus of treatment is to help you to understand and deal more effectively with problems you are encountering.
You can expect the following:

  • You will have a specific therapist assigned to you who will meet with you on a scheduled  basis.
  • Everything you talk about is confidential.
  • The focus of talking with the therapist is to understand why your problems are happening and alternative ways of thinking and living.
  • The therapist does not have any magical answers, but will help you come to your own solutions.
  • The desire to change on your part is essential.  The length of treatment will be decided by you and your therapist.
  •  Sometimes treatment sessions include a spouse, a family, or a group of people mutually helping one another.
