Q: What can I expect from my first session? During your first session your therapist will ask you questions to find out what your goals are for therapy and will ask you general questions designed to get to know you better. Your therapist will also provide you feedback as necessary.
Q. If I go to counseling, doesn’t that mean I am “crazy?” Absolutely not! Most people experience some type of depression or anxiety during their lifetime. I mean think about it; we have all had relationships breakup, loved ones die or leave, and many of us have gone through big or little traumas in our lifetime. So of course it would only make sense that most people will experience depression or anxiety sometime during their lifetime. Our therapists understand this and they are here to help you through this process.
Q. How long do therapy sessions generally last? Depending on your insurance plan, most therapy sessions typically last between 45-60 minutes.
Q. How often do I come to counseling sessions? That really depends on you. Some people come to counseling once a week, others come every two weeks, and some come monthly. You and your therapist will come to an agreement on how often you will meet with one another.
Q. Do you provide Video Counseling? While in-office counseling is always preferred, for clients with transportation or mobility issues, video counseling can be accommodated upon request.
Q. What are your hours of operation? Serene Solutions provides appointments Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. All counseling sessions are by appointment only.
