Psychotherapy requires active client participation in order to be successful. Clients must work during sessions and actively work on change outside of the therapy setting. Psychotherapy often involves unpleasant memories and uncomfortable emotions, such as sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. Yet the courage to risk these feelings and memories often leads to improved relationships, solutions for specific problems, better feelings about one’s self, and reduced stress.

After the initial sessions, each client will be provided with the homework necessary to achieve therapeutic goals. Each client will also participate in the development of his or her initial treatment plan. Questions about this process are welcome at any time.
