What to expect in therapy

Embarking on a therapy journey can be transformative and extremely helpful for business owners. Therapy doesn’t have to take up much time in your busy schedule. That's why we offer face-to-face virtual sessions making it convenient and highly effective for busy professionals.

As a boutique practice, we take on a limited number of clients so we can offer you truly personalized care and so you never feel like you’re just another client to get through. We will take time to understand you as a person as a whole and develop a tailored plan for you based on your specific needs and preferences.

Here's a broad overview idea of what to expect:

  • Free Consultation: Call us today for a 15-minute phone consultation. Discuss your stressors, goals, and expectations. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

  • Initial Assessment: The first few sessions will involve a comprehensive evaluation of your mental health and personal and professional dynamics. Your therapist will share first impressions of what the work will include and you get a sense for how we work and determine if this is the right fit for your needs.

  • Goal Setting: Collaboratively establish working goals and focus areas tailored to your specific needs. 

  • Therapy Sessions: In the beginning phase expect to meet on a weekly basis. We will continually check in on the frequency of sessions, with some clients dropping to every other week meetings after some progress has been made.

  • Progress Review: Periodic assessments to track your progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

  • Ongoing Care: Continued guidance and strategies to help you maintain and enhance your mental well-being.

Every session is customized to address your concerns and goals, ensuring you receive the most effective care.

FAQs about working with a business therapist

Is therapy confidential?

We understand that the idea of seeking therapy can feel daunting due to the stigma surrounding mental health. It's important to recognize that prioritizing your mental well-being is not a sign of weakness or failure but a strategic move towards greater success. Just as you would invest in your physical health or professional development, investing in your mental health is crucial for sustaining long-term success and personal fulfillment.

Your privacy is our top priority. All sessions are confidential, ensuring that your personal information and discussions remain private. However, there are certain legal and ethical limits to confidentiality. These include situations where there is a risk of harm to yourself or others, instances of abuse or neglect, or when required by a court order. These exceptions are in place to protect your safety and your sense of well-being, and will of course be discussed with you in detail during your initial session.

What types of counseling are available for an entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurs can benefit from receiving some quality one-on-one sessions focusing on personal concerns, self care and emotional resilience. Our team utilizes a variety of modalities, ensuring you receive the support best suited to your entrepreneurial journey, such as:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Identifying and changing negative thought patterns to improve emotional well-being.

  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): Techniques to reduce stress and increase focus through mindfulness practices.

  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): Concentrating on solutions and future goals rather than past problems.

What's the difference between a therapist and a psychologist?

Understanding the distinctions between various mental health professionals can help you choose the right support for your needs.

Therapist: a broad term that includes professionals who provide mental health services, such as counseling and psychotherapy. They can have various educational backgrounds and licenses, including Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs), Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs), and others. They focus on helping clients manage and overcome mental health issues, emotional challenges, and fears through various therapeutic techniques.

Psychologist: A psychologist specifically refers to someone who holds a doctoral degree in psychology (Ph.D. or Psy.D.). Psychologists are extensively trained in the science of behavior and mental processes. They are qualified to conduct psychological assessments and testing, diagnose various mental health conditions and disorders, and provide psychotherapy. Psychologists often engage in research and may specialize in areas such as clinical psychology, counseling psychology, or educational psychology. Unlike some therapists, psychologists do not prescribe medication but may collaborate with psychiatrists or other medical professionals for comprehensive care.

The key difference lies in their education, scope of practice, and the specific services they provide, but it is important to note credentials are one part of the process of finding the right fit. It is also important to find a professional who has experience in what you are coming to therapy for and you feel understood when you talk and share in session.
