How long does a counseling session last?

Sessions are usually 50 – 60 minutes in length and are held weekly for individuals, couples, family, teens and children. The length of treatment depends on a number of factors including the complexity of the issues, the motivation of the individuals involved and the goals set by the client/counselor. Therapy focused on a specific goal or issue of focus can last a few weeks to a few months. Longer term or open-ended therapy may address more complex issues and can last up to a year or longer.

What can I expect in counseling?

The purpose of the initial counseling session is to get to know you and gain an understanding of your counseling needs. Then, the counselor and client will collaborate together to set goals and develop a treatment plan. The counselor’s role is to provide a safe environment so the client can process feelings, examine belief systems and thinking patterns in order to facilitate growth, change and find healthier ways of living.

Is what I say confidential?

Most everything you say is confidential; however there are a limited number of situations that the counselor/therapist must report:

  1. If you are a danger to yourself
  2. Any serious threat to someone else
  3. Any form of child abuse or neglect
  4. Any form of elder abuse or neglect
  5. Court subpoena
