Therapy is an investment in your future happiness. It will not only improve your life, but the lives of everyone around you.
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, we’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.
The difference is between someone who can do something and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, and you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
Medication can be effective but it alone cannot solve all issues. Sometimes medication is needed in conjunction with counseling. Our work together is designed to explore and unpack the problems you are experiencing and expand on the strengths that can help you accomplish your personal goals.
Because each person has different issues and goals for counseling, it will be different depending on the individual. We tailor our therapeutic approach to your specific needs.
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say on a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time counseling can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.
A client may come to counseling once or twice or may choose to continue counseling until they have met their goals for life improvement. The average length of treatment for Lisa Stull’s clients is approximately 3 months or 12 sessions based on the rapid response of clients to her solution-focused approaches.
Sessions are minimally 50 minutes for individuals and 80 minutes for couples. Extended counseling sessions may be booked for 2 or more hours on a single day, and marathon sessions are usually booked for 4 to 6 hours a day for two or more days. Clients who are traveling a distance, working through a crisis, or prefer a longer session format may benefit from an extended/marathon session format.
Psychotherapy offers a safe, nonjudgmental space that helps people understand that they can do something to improve their situation. You will develop a trusting relationship with your relationship, clarify and assess your presenting problem, create a treatment plan to reach your goals, and then you will learn how to break unhealthy patterns, and develop new tools and skills. All you have to do in sessions is show up as yourself! We are looking forward to getting to know you and helping you become your best self.
