Therapy requires talking about your primary concerns and issues in your life, telling your story. Therapy sessions are usually 60 minutes. However, there are times when a longer session is requested. Weekly sessions are encouraged. Sometimes people find themselves in a crisis or greatly distressed and have a need for more than one session per week, or until the crisis diminishes.
The time between sessions is utilized in vivo; allowing you to integrate and process what was discussed during the therapy session. At times, there may be actions introduced for you to complete including, reading chapters in a specific book, keeping a journal or behavior record. Therapy requires you to be an active participant, both inside the therapy session and in your outside world.
