FAQs

What do I talk about in therapy?


Clients seek therapy for many different reasons. You can discuss whatever you feel is most important to you at the time. People generally talk about what is complicating their life the most or find themselves thinking about more consistently. Feel free to be as open as you like.




How long should I be in therapy?


As long you need to! There is no time limit on how long you can be in therapy. When working with Dr. Mel, you will set goals for yourself and check in periodically to see how you are feeling about your progress. You and your therapist will discuss when it's time to end therapy, but not to worry...you can always come back for a tune up if you need it!




How long do therapy sessions last?


Therapy sessions go for 50 minutes per session.




Will I be given a diagnosis or prescribed medication?
