Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between an individual and a psychologist. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life and your personal history relevant to your issue. As you begin therapy, you should establish clear goals with Dr. Myers. Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development. Either way, it is most common to schedule regular sessions with Dr. Myers (usually weekly). It is important to understand that you will get more results from therapy if you actively participate in the process.
A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy.
