You might imagine psychotherapy involves lying on a couch with your therapist just out of sight and talking about your childhood. While the team at Brighter Life Therapy, PLLC, wants you to feel comfortable, you and your therapist sit in chairs during your appointments.
Also, while there’s some benefit in exploring your past, in most cases, your therapist wants to help you face your future with confidence.
You begin with an initial consultation so your provider can develop an understanding of you and your needs. This meeting might feel a little bit like an interview as your provider is trying to get to know you and identify the condition causing your symptoms. Your provider uses the information to create your treatment plan.
Then in subsequent meetings, you talk to your therapist, and they ask you questions to help you consider your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors from different angles.
Depending on your needs, you might also spend time learning and practicing techniques to cope with your thoughts and emotions.
Brighter Life Therapy, PLLC, also offers telemedicine services for existing patients. Once you and your therapist develop a routine, you can opt to use the convenient telemedicine option.
