COUNSELING AND EDUCATION SESSION DETAILS
Therapy can stir up thoughts and feelings that might be upsetting or unsettling. When people go through therapy, they often learn that change takes a significant investment of time. At any point, clients may experience deterioration in emotional and psychological stability, as they become aware of previously unconscious, emotionally laden material. Please let me know if you need to take a break at any point during a session and/or if you are experiencing any of the above concerns.
Our relationship is professional in nature, so please limit our contact to our arranged sessions and emails/texts for scheduling. Please do not invite me to social gatherings, offer me extravagant gifts, ask me to write a reference for you, or ask me to spend time with you in any other way than the professional context of our counseling sessions.
Some people prefer to seek additional or alternative approaches to personal wellbeing. This might include diet and nutrition, self-help books, expressive activities, acupuncture, yoga and exercise, meditation, medication, spiritual activities, or any number of other practices. Many people find that the greatest benefits come from a combination approach, but it is certainly your right to choose the route that helps you the most.
