I believe therapy is a place to get perspective -- we may change or add to our own perspective, or we can even work to feel more solid in the perspective you already have. That can sound so simple, but the framework with which we view our lives has a profound impact on the way we see ourselves and the way we move forward.
Therapy is a place to process the past, work to be more present here and now, and to build skills and plan for the future. You get to choose the focus that serves you, and your therapist should be there to support the direction you choose.
I believe strongly that therapy should be driven by you as the client: How often? For how long? What are we focusing on? This time in session is for you, and it works best if it's focused on what you want, what you care about, and what you desire for yourself.
