There are 5 phases to therapy that form the journey. First, we work to understand you. You will be asked about your health and family history, any diagnoses, any past treatments and medications, and what you would like to achieve by the last session. Then we build a path, known as a care plan, that is unique to you and is used by the therapist to help you reach your goals. The care plan is provided to you and is revised during sessions with you, as needed.
Regular sessions that happen weekly, or every other week, provide you and the therapist the time needed to understand what is happening, review what has gone well and identify key pieces that build steps towards your goals. Once the initial therapy goals have been achieved, you may transition on to something else that was discovered in the process or begin to end services.
As you may desire, services that come to an end point will be marked by a farewell session. In this last conversation with the therapist, you will have a chance to review your goals, reinforce the strengths you gained and conclude therapy. Some overarching patterns and insights will be discussed to provide you a platform from which to feel confident that you can maintain what you have achieved.
