How We Approach Therapy

How We Approach Therapy for Anxiety​
Intake and Assessment
The intake and assessment process for individual therapy takes place over three consecutive weekly sessions. Each session takes approximately 45 to 55 minutes. The first session focuses on what brought you to therapy. During this session, your therapist will ask about current symptoms of anxiety. In addition, he/she/they will ask lots of questions to get to know you. During the next session, your therapist will continue to gather information and ask you to bring up any information that may not have come up yet but still may be relevant. Oftentimes, people wonder, "How will i know if its relevant or not?!? This is a great question. When in doubt, please share whatever comes to mind with your therapist
Setting Goals In Therapy
Throughout the intake process, you and your therapist will discuss your goals for treatment. By the end of the third session, your therapist should also have a good sense as to whether you two may be a good fit for therapy. If it does not seem like it would be a good fit, your therapist will discuss next steps which may include therapy elsewhere, recommendations for other services that may be better suited to help you achieve your goals, and referrals for services. If, at any time before the third session is completed, the therapist determines they would not be an appropriate therapist for you, the therapist would inform you of how best to proceed.If you and your therapist decide to work together, you both would define goals for treatment, discuss expectations for the work you would be doing together, and schedule your next therapy session.
Therapy Sessions
Generally speaking, therapy sessions occur on a weekly basis. At Approach Therapy many clients schedule their appointments on the same day and time each week because it is easy to remember and fits well into their schedule. However, we do not require you to maintain the same spot each week. We open our schedules two months in advance and welcome clients to schedule appointments two months in advance. Clients with recurring weekly appointments are most likely to obtain their preferred appointment times.
Closure and Termination
Throughout therapy, we will work together to help you learn tools to manage anxiety and make sure you have ample opportunities to figure out what works for you. We will revisit what intitially brought you to therapy and discuss how and when therapy will end. Oftentimes there are natural ends to therapy as many clients start therapy for a specific reason and end therapy as they learn to better manage their symptoms and circumstances.Some clients like to reduce the frequency of sessions before ending therapy completely. Others decide to stop weekly therapy sessions outright. Whatever you decide, your therapist can offer insight, recommendations, referrals, and feedback.
