What you might experience no matter what brings you: You will encounter compassion and respect. The work is based on the goals of the client/s. The therapist may offer ideas on how to meet that goal and the decision will be mutual. This is a client-centered perspective.
When you decide on therapy you will first have an intake. This is an interview asking you a series of questions that will assist the therapist in making an assessment and an evaluation as to the process ahead. This will give us a road map and direction.You will also be asked to fill out the forms found on this website to also aid in the process.
You will have sessions consisting of talk therapy. The therapist may invite you to explore the issues and process further with a form of art work. No skills are necessary. You are never expected to be a professional artist or poet. However, it is in the process of creating that more information may unfold. Again, this is an invitation. It is imperative that a client feel comfortable and safe in the space of therapy. The therapist is well skilled in forms of talk therapy. The arts are used as a tool in the process but not an absolute.
