What can I expect in therapy?
During therapy sessions, you will discuss your current challenges with a particular focus on the reason you sought therapy. You can expect your therapist to listen and suggest avenues for change, while supporting you throughout the whole process.
Sessions last approximately 45-55 minutes. Session frequency varies from twice a week to monthly, based on your needs. Many issues can be addressed in 12 sessions, however, the number of sessions is determined jointly after your initial session and periodic measurements of progress.
Booster sessions are offered to help you maintain your new habits and prevent relapse. The availability of booster sessions also make it easy for you to call when you face a significant challenge. They give you the opportunity to work with someone who knows you well and has helped you once before.

Is therapy confidential?
In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and psychotherapist. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client.
However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule. Exceptions include:
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. The therapist is required to notify the police.
If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
