Starting Treatment

How to Begin

Many of the people I work with come to therapy with intense anxiety, depressed feelings, frustration with relationships or general dissatisfaction in life.

Before entering therapy, many believe that they should "just get over it!" 

and feel bad that they are simply unable to do so.

Together, we work to understand the nature of one’s struggle and seek the most authentic way to deal and recover. In my experience, people often start feeling better just knowing they don't have to cope alone anymore.

This image by Susan Bostrom Wong reminded me of the rawness of the first encounter, the face of the person is still unclear and personal features undifferentiated, just human, and bare.

The First meeting

Finding a good “match” with a therapist is one of the most important things. The first couple of sessions usually give us a sense of what it would be like to work together. It is ok to bring up any questions or concerns you may have regarding therapy - every thought is legitimate for discussion.

Different Routes

Some people are ready to "jump in" straight away, others need more time to develop trust in the work. Some find it useful to come twice a week to get more intensive support, some like to combine psychotherapy with other treatments such as medications or alternative medicine, in which case I can offer referrals and work in collaboration with the other care provider. After getting to know each other a little bit we can talk about what would be the best course of treatment.
