Dallas Counseling Information
The reasons for seeking a therapist vary widely and the decision to participate in counseling is an important one. Having a better understanding of what to expect from counseling can increase your comfort levels.
The beginning stages of counseling focuses on identifying the concerns that led you to counseling and then coming together to decide which services are appropriate. Some active options for dealing with the presenting problem range from educational reading, referrals to workshops, psychiatric consultation, and evaluating cognitive distortions.
I have discovered that many individuals dropout of counseling because they do not feel a connection with the counselor or feel like no progress is being made. We will work as a team to avoid these pitfalls by developing a treatment plan that will be measured every week, testing and therapist connection with the Working Alliance Inventory, and evaluating the impact of each out-of-session assignment.
