How can therapy/medications help me?
There are many benefits in participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support and help you find relief for issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship problems. Counseling is extremely valuable in managing personal growth, relationships, and the many challenges faced in daily life. By applying therapy techniques, therapists can provide different perspectives on complicated problems or even guide you to a solution.
What happens during therapy?
Therapy may be different depending on the goals for therapy and the needs of the person. Typically speaking, we will discuss the things that are currently happening in your life, things that happened in the past that are relevant to your issue, and review the gains we’ve had from the previous session. Ultimately, I want to help you bring what you’ve discovered or learnt during therapy back into your daily life.
Medication vs. Therapy
Therapy cannot solve your mental and emotional problems alone. Therapy is needed in order to address the source of your distress and behavior patterns. Medication intervention has been proven to impact positively the neuro chemicals that are implicated in mental and emotional problems. Utilizing a combination of medication management and psychotherapy, we provide a holistic approach to care .
Will our conversations remain confidential?
Confidentiality is a key component of behavioral health management. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else. By law, your Advanced Practitioner can’t release this information without your written consent, except in the following situations:
- The Advanced Practitioner suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults or elders.
- The Advanced Practitioner suspects the client is in danger of harming themselves or has threated to harm another person.
