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.
Call 503.750.7436 or email below to schedule an appointment. I work with clients in my SE office Wednesday through Friday during business hours.
The office is in the ActivSpace building. It's a four-story red and silver building between 8th and 9th and between Main and Salmon in SE Portland. Please allow for time to find parking on the street (bus is nearby, bike parking available). Enter through the breezeway, type 220 into the phone pad by the elevator and you'll be buzzed in for your scheduled appointment. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor and walk around to 220.
