There is no clear answer for how long you will be in therapy for. It will be based on your goals and what you want to work on. It will be based on how your progress looks like, how long you feel like you want to be in therapy and if you want to continue therapy. As a therapist, I will be working closely with you. You and I will develop a therapeutic relationship and alliance working together towards your goals in therapy. This therapeutic relationship takes time to foster and strengthen. This is another factor to consider when wondering how long therapy lasts.

Therapy will focus on whatever you want to focus, and around your goals. I can provide psychotherapy for both mental health and substance use. I can also process with you any unresolved trauma and work with you on eating disorder recovery, or body image concerns.
