Personal Investment

You, your wellbeing, and your quality of life is an investment. Often, we invest a considerable amount of time into our physical wellbeing. Many times, without question. We take our vitamins and eat vegetables, try to stay active, see our primary care physician, all in the name of health. Yet often our psychological health does not get the same attention.

Your psychological health is just as important as your physical health. Just like your physical health requires your time and attention, so does your psychological health. Psychotherapy can help you create, improve, and maintain this investment.

Those who are actively engaged in therapy frequently report an improvement in relationships, communication, mood, and a reduction in experience of distress.

Psychotherapy allows for a safe, confidential, affirming, non-judgmental space to explore one’s innermost feelings, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. In psychotherapy, you will have the company and guidance of a professional to walk alongside you as you navigate the complexity of life.

Whether you’re starting psychotherapy for the first time or returning, it is important to remember that in order for you to get the most out of this process, you need to fully show up. This means being willing to be vulnerable, to at times explore difficult things, and to learn to self-reflect. Ultimately, to show up as you are, with a willingness to look at yourself and how psychotherapy can help move you towards well-being and your hopes and dreams. This will require active investment of time, money, energy, and heart.

We do not claim that any of this will be easy but investing in yourself is worth it. You are a worthy investment.

Time

The time it will take to benefit from therapy is dependent upon your goals, your current situation, and your history. During the initial assessment, your psychologist will help you to identify goals, create a plan, and talk about recommendations specific to you, which will include a specific time commitment. Generally, it is recommended to attend psychotherapy once a week. Current research demonstrates that higher session frequency of psychotherapy often leads to greater improvement that occurs more quickly over time than attending psychotherapy less frequently over time.

As you progress in psychotherapy over time, you likely will not need weekly support and will shift to biweekly therapy. Maintenance therapy (every 3 weeks to once a month) is often recommended once goals are reached in order to maintain therapeutic gains (progress made) and foster continued improvement over time.

Attending psychotherapy weekly is an important start and part of the process. Much of the work of psychotherapy also occurs outside of the office, through practicing strategies, gaining insight, and working towards therapy goals.

Energy

The amount of energy you are willing to put into the psychotherapy process will directly influence the outcome. A psychotherapy client who is willing able and able to be open and actively engage in the process is generally likely to experience the most success and growth overall.

Financial Commitment

Psychotherapy requires a financial commitment in order for you to fully invest in yourself, engage fully in the process of psychotherapy, and have access to and utilize the expertise of your assigned psychologist.
