Risks & Benefits of Therapy

While most clients report positive results as they make changes in their lives, some clients experience interruptions in normal patterns, feelings, and relationships. These changes may add up to positive changes in the long run, but meanwhile, individuals, couples, and families may feel discomfort and additional stress.

Crisis Management

What to Do in a Crisis
Because of the way we work, we are not available 24 hours a day. It is important that you talk to your therapist about designing an emergency plan that works for you. If you are experiencing an emergency now, call 911.
