Individuals and families seek therapy or counseling for several reasons. A good rule of thumb is to consider trying therapy when what you are doing no longer works or when your coping skills are creating more problems for you than addressing the root cause of the pain.
The length of a typical session ranges from 50 to 53 minutes. However, some services and circumstances may require more or less time. Your assigned mental health provider will assess and accommodate these circumstances.
The frequency of your therapy sessions will be determined by the provider's clinical recommendations and the client. This will be discussed during the initial treatment planning phase of therapy.
Yes, therapy is confidential. Therapists are bound by ethical and legal obligations to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of their clients. This means the information shared during therapy sessions is confidential and cannot be disclosed to others without the client's explicit consent. However, there are some exceptions to confidentiality that therapists must adhere to, such as harm to self or others, abuse of vulnerable populations, or court orders. We are committed to protecting confidentiality within the bounds of the law.

Typically, in the first session you get an introduction to your therapist (in-person or online) and discuss your treatment plan. You will complete paperwork online to give your provider some information about you and your goals in therapy, prior to the first session. The paperwork is usually reviewed, and the therapist will further assess with follow-up questions, and make a clinical recommendation for evidence-based treatment approaches.
Our availability varies by provider; we do have providers who work at night and on weekends.
