What is Therapy?

Therapy is a process of affecting positive change in one's emotional, behavioral and relational situations. Issues are addressed using a brief narrative approach encompassing many areas in one's life. Dr. Carey's systemic approach helps clients balance independence and connection with others. Therapy can inspire clients to live vibrant fulfilling lives.



Why would people come to therapy?

Seeking therapy is a personal choice. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Some people need help dealing with problems in their relationships, marital discord, and family conflicts. Others seek counseling for individual concerns including, anxiety, depression, life adjustments, or for personal growth and change. In fact, any issue keeping an individual, couple or family from living happily and productively can be addressed in therapy. Therapy is right for anyone who wants to get the most out of their life by taking responsibility, seeking greater self-awareness and creating positive change.

Will therapy work for me?

Everyone can benefit from therapy. Even if you are used to working out most of your problems on your own, recognizing when you need a helping hand is the first step to creating those positive changes you envision. Therapy provides many long-lasting benefits: tools to communicate better, strategies to deal with anger, relaxation techniques, new ways of visualizing situations, and more self-confidence. Therapy is an investment in your future well-being and competence.

When do I schedule appointments?

A waiting list is available if you need a late appointment Each appointment is 50 minutes in length and scheduled on the hour. Call or email for the time that best fits your schedule.

How long do I remain in therapy?

Most clients begin with one session weekly and continue until solutions are found or goals are met. Other clients may meet more or less frequently. Therapy is a process and does require an investment of time. While traditional psychoanalytic approaches may last for years, Dr. Carey believes in a brief approach. Progress is assessed in each session and the need for further sessions is discussed.
