How long will I be in counseling?

At the first session we:

  • Listen to your story and what brings you to counseling.
  • Work with you to determine a treatment plan and goals.

Average length of counseling in my practice experience:

  • Results cannot be predicted or guaranteed but clients may average 3-9 months in therapy dependent on the issue and their time investment.
  • Some clients need feedback and guidance on a specific issue while others seek longer term progress.
