General Questions

According to the American Counseling Association, counseling is defined as, “ a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals “

The initial visit is for you and your counselor to get to know each other and get an idea of how to proceed. Remember to receive the full therapeutic experience it usually takes more than one session. After an initial introduction, there are business formalities. Next, your therapist usually gives you time to tell what brings you to counseling. After hearing your concerns and goals, typically the therapist conceptualizes your story and how both of you might go about addressing the matters. 

The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that one in five Adult Americans experiences a mental health concern in a given year. However, most do not receive treatment. You don’t have to be labeled or diagnosed as anything to have a mental health concern and counseling can be beneficial to everyone.

The amount of time that you spend in the session is usually an hour, but it can go longer depending on your circumstances. Also, the number of sessions varies depending on your conditions and goals. Customarily, once you meet therapeutic goals, you will naturally phase out of therapy.
