Short Term Counseling
What is Short Term Therapy?
Short term, goal-directed counseling (typically 6-12 sessions)
Focuses on strengths rather than weaknesses or deficits
Develops resources and coping skills that help in reaching future goals
Concentrates on the here and now (What will help your issue?) rather than the past (Why am I the way I am?)
Useful for: life change anxiety issues, situational depression, self-esteem, communication skills, interpersonal/work related stress
Is not indicated for symptoms related to long term and severe depression or anxiety, clients with eating disorders, or clients with any history or current symptoms of self-harm
What Can I Expect With Short Term Therapy?
You will complete preliminary screening assessments prior to your first session
Your first session will be with a clinician who will help assess if short term therapy is right for you
If short term therapy is determined not to be appropriate, we will connect you to another clinician
