FAQs

I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.

Would medication or therapy be most effective for me?

There are a lot of reasons someone decides to do therapy or start a medication. Our medication providers focus not only on diagnosis, but discovering imbalances in the mind and body. Medication is prescribed to help the mind and body function in a healthier way and is often paired with vitamin and diet recommendations for a more holistic approach. If you chose therapy the focus is on personal insight, understanding, and learning skills and thinking strategies that can be implemented to better your life. Often one modality is sufficient but research has shown that when medication and therapy are combined there is an increased chance of a more positive outcome. Amber Creek is unique in that we have medication providers and therapist working in the same office. This makes collaboration easier and more accessible.

How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

Because each person has different issues and goals for counseling, it will be different depending on the individual. We will tailor our therapeutic approach to your specific needs.

How long will it take?

Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique and the length of time spent in counseling can vary depending on numerous factors. It is important to allow yourself time to accomplish goals and when thinking about therapy, a focus on personal development is often more valuable than the amount of sessions you need. Feel free to discuss the factors driving you to therapy with your mental health provider and have a conversation with them about what to expect.

I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
