    How does it work?

    During your session, the first 30 minutes will be spent understanding your current goal and concerns. Next, there will be a 15 minute break during which your therapist consults with a team of mental health specialists. When your session reconvenes, the final 15 minutes will be spent providing you with the team’s thoughts, strategies, and resources.

    Can you solve your problems in a single session of therapy?

    Can you solve your problems in a single session? The simple and short answer for many is yes, often you can. Although not yet common practice in the United States, this approach has been popularized and refined in Canada and Australia for many years with tremendous success. Solution-Centered Sessions are great if you have a busy lifestyle, or if you are new to therapy and uncertain of what to expect. There is zero commitment required beyond your first session, so it is a great low-pressure way to see if therapy is right for you. Conversely, it is also great if you know you benefit from therapy, but don’t have the time on a consistent basis.

    An hour can make all the difference. ​
