Therapy is a big commitment. It's a commitment you make of your time and your dollars. It's a commitment you make to yourself, for yourself. And, those around you will likely benefit as well. Generally sessions are weekly. On occasion, other arrangements are made. Appointments are either one hour or an hour and a half (couples/families) which includes 5 minutes of therapist prep time and another five minutes for charting.
It's not possible to say how many therapy hours would be required for a particular concern--largely because nothing happens in a vacuum, other concerns may arise. Some issues can be worked through in several sessions. Alternatively, it's not uncommon for people to work with me for 1-2 years, sometimes then returning months or years later for a few sessions as a refresher. You can expect to spend anywhere from 6 months to a couple of years in weekly therapy to make deep, characterological changes. These are not changes that occur out of willpower and determination, but out of a very real change deep inside of you. These are the changes that allow you to experience yourself as different, more accessible, more fully alive, and with less effort.
