How Do I Know If I Need Therapy?
Therapy for your mental or sexual health can be helpful for understanding yourself better, processing traumatic experiences, working through relationship conflicts, managing emotions from mental health conditions, working through stuck points in life, and much more.
There is often a belief that therapy is for people who are in dire need of help for their mental health. It’s so important for society to work towards normalizing mental health care for any reason. Your mental health and relationships shouldn’t have to get to a breaking point before it feels possible to seek out support.
Generally, if you find yourself even mildly struggling with issues with your mental health, emotions, lifestyle, relationships, and career, it wouldn’t hurt to explore the idea of starting therapy with a trained mental health professional. There is no topic “too insignificant” to take to therapy and ask for insight and support.

How Many Sessions Would I Need To Reach My Goals?
This can be a tricky question to answer as the frequency of therapy can vary on different factors. One factor to consider is how frequently you can attend sessions. The recommendation of therapy frequency is typically weekly or bi-weekly sessions to reach the goals you’d like to work on in the quickest amount of time. That being said, therapy isn’t necessarily a race to the finish line. Many of the situations that people come to therapy to work through often come from childhood, learned behavior, long standing coping mechanisms, and more; all of which take time and patience to work through.
Another factor is looking at how much work someone is putting into their mental health care. For instance, someone coming to therapy who is reluctant or ambivalent towards the work needed to make changes, likely will struggle to see lasting changes. The work done in therapy doesn’t stop once you leave the session. If you are ready to do the work and have an open mind to the process, you should start to see the results you’re seeking within a few months typically.
Therapy is hard work, but it’s work that benefits so many people. It can feel so uncomfortable to sit with uncomfortable realizations, but acknowledging the ways you can improve your life can make a world of a difference.
Are Counseling Sessions Held In Person or Virtually?
At present, all of our therapists are conducting therapy sessions virtually, via telehealth. Since transitioning to 100% telehealth services at the height of the pandemic, we have found that virtual therapy sessions tend to provide our clients with the same quality of care as in-person sessions, with an added convenience.
Our secure, HIPAA compliant telehealth platform enables you to connect with a therapist virtually via video. Convenient, automatic reminders and calendar invites make it easy to remember your appointment time.
If you feel ready to get started, but still have a few questions, feel free to reach out. We offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation where our Intake Specialist can learn more about your goals, answer any questions or concerns you might have, and align you with the therapist who is the best fit for your needs.
