Quick Thought: You 101

Dr. John M. Grohol makes a great point: Most therapy clients see results in 12 weeks. This doesn’t mean that every problem can be solved in this timeframe (my clients working to resolve trauma, hoarding, and PTSD benefit from more time) but 12 weeks of consistent engagement with a good therapist whom you like and trust can greatly improve your self-awareness, life satisfaction, resilience, energy, and optimism.

So don’t fear that you’re signing on for a decade on “the couch”–it’s not like that anymore. These days, psychotherapy is more like continuing education–about yourself!–and you get to decide whether you’ll enroll for one semester or go for your master’s in You.
