"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."
