Frequently Asked Questions

People suffering from generalized anxiety disorder have excessive worry or anxiety symptoms for at least six months. They worry about everything, including their health, work, social interactions, and daily routine.
An anxiety attack can lead to significant problems in their lives, including school, social interactions, and work.

Psychotherapists have the expertise and experience to diagnose clients properly. Psychotherapists can, for example, recognize ADHD symptoms and anxiety symptoms.

Psychotherapists cannot prescribe medicine. Psychiatric doctors are medical professionals with the proper knowledge and expertise for prescribing medications.

Judging when to stop therapy is a straightforward process and natural thing to do because you feel it. It's that moment when it's time for treatment again, and you think, "huh, I'm seeing my therapist again already? I have no idea what to talk about." Typically this transition means we space out the time between sessions to go into more of a maintenance schedule to gain confidence that you really got this. You can do this on your own. Once that confidence is built, we are ready for discharge.

What happens in psychotherapy is very subjective as it is influenced by the interaction of what you are bringing to the table and your therapist's skills and knowledge. For all clients, we focus on exercising positive emotion centers of the brain and identifying strengths, creating stability in the here and now, reducing anxiety about future events, and healing the past.

Most people benefit from therapy once a week. We require once a week initially because this frequency is essential in building a trusting relationship between you and your therapist so the hard work can be done. Some people need to meet more frequently to help with forming stability. As progress is made and we can enter into a maintenance schedule, once every other week or once a month becomes feasible. Medicaid requires clients seen at least once every 30 days, and we have adopted this policy for all of our clients.
