Frequently Asked Questions

How can one make the most of their online counseling sessions?

It can help to think about what prompted you to seek therapy and what you may want to get out of it before your first session. While identifying goals to work towards can be beneficial, it’s also okay if you aren’t sure of what you want to achieve in therapy. Therapists are trained and experienced in helping people feel comfortable, answering questions, and working with you to set a path.

Therapy is most effective when you continue the work between sessions. This may mean simply reflecting on what you and your therapist discuss, noticing changes in your thoughts or behavior, practicing new skills or suggesting activities, journaling, or completing “homework assignments” such as suggested reading, worksheets, thought or mood logs, etc. Remember, the more effort you put in to therapy, the more benefits you’ll see.
