It’s Not All What It’s Cracked Up to be…

A common question prospective clients ask me is “How long will I need to come?”  Unfortunately, there is no crystal ball.  Therapy is an uncovering process that entails making what is unknown, known.  The simplest answer to this very important question is that you’ll know you’re done when you know you’re done.  I will say that one of the least effective ways to approach therapy is what I call “The Popcorn Method.”  Popcorn therapy is when a client brings up whatever pops up in session.  The client who utilizes the Popcorn Method arrives to therapy without reflection beforehand on how to make the best use of our time together.  Good therapy results when, through considered reflection, you select material from your life to bring in for our work together.
