What to Expect

The Mental Health Counseling Process

Consultation & First Sessions

The early stage of therapy, including your consultation and first few sessions, will focus on building rapport and mutually making sure you’re a good fit for each other. Therapy is, after all, about establishing a secure and trusting relationship.


What should you expect from a typical counseling session? Well, that will vary depending on your counselor’s treatment philosophy and on your unique relationship with your counselor. That being said, you and your counselor might discuss your ongoing challenges and concerns or work through difficult memories. You might not feel better immediately or by the end of every session, but don’t lose hope. Trust the healing process.

Moving Forward

No two people’s therapeutic journey will look the same. Once you and your counselor feel like you’ve achieved your goals for therapy and you’re feeling more confident in your ability to handle life’s challenges, your counselor may suggest scheduling less frequent sessions, but there’s no rush for you to wrap up therapy. Healing is a journey and we’ll hold space for your healing for however long it takes.

“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you, doesn’t mean you can, should, or need to do it alone.”
