During your first therapy session, your therapist will typically ask about your current concerns, your past experiences, and your goals for therapy. They may also ask questions about your personal history, family background, and other important factors that could be relevant to your treatment.

The length of therapy can vary depending on the individual’s needs and goals. Some people may see improvement after just a few sessions, while others may require several months or even years of treatment. The effectiveness of therapy also depends on the person’s willingness to engage in the process and make changes.

At Orchestra our program range from free to $180/ session depending on an individual’s needs and goals. It can even be covered by your insurance plan depending on the policy. Regardless, there is something for everyone and nobody is excluded from receiving the help they need. 

It’s important to remember that therapy is a safe and confidential space, and it’s okay to take time to build trust with your therapist. If there are certain topics that you don’t feel comfortable discussing, you can let your therapist know and work together to find ways to address those topics in a way that feels safe and supportive.

It’s common for some people to feel worse before feeling better during therapy. This is because therapy can bring up difficult emotions and memories that have been avoided. However, with time and support from a therapist, people find that therapy can help them feel more empowered and better able to manage and heal from their difficult emotions.

While therapy is generally considered safe, there can be risks or side effects, such as emotional discomfort, conflict with family or friends, or reliving traumatic experiences. It’s important to discuss any concerns or issues with your therapist at the outset of therapy and ongoing so they can remove any risks and provide you with the benefits.
