"If you are looking for a therapist most likely you have a problem you can't solve on your own. My first job is to listen very carefully. I need to understand why you are coming for therapy. We'll form a strategy to get you where you want to go. My questions will help me understand your problem and are geared to help you see your problem in a new way. Sometimes we'll talk about the past and sometimes we'll stay in the present. Sometimes I will just listen and sometimes I'll give you homework."
