How long will therapy take?

The course of treatment will vary depending on a variety of factors, including the nature and severity of the issue that brought you into treatment, the treatment goals that we agree on, and your motivation and commitment to the process of therapy.

Longer-term psychotherapy is usually the most effective treatment when the reasons for treatment stem from firmly entrenched negative beliefs, deep-rooted relational patterns, or issues such as depression and anxiety. In other instances, such as during a time of acute crisis or to help one navigate through a specific life transition, it is possible to address a client's problems in a briefer, more time-limited manner. After an initial assessment period, we should be able to help evaluate an approximate course of treatment.
