What can I expect in a therapy session?
A session lasts 50 minutes. At times you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. For therapy to "work" you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the therapy sessions.
What if I don't know what my goals are for therapy?
Your therapist will help you to identify appropriate goals. During the course of therapy your goals may change. However, establishing a direction for psychotherapy will help you get the most out of the experience.

What do I tell my parents?
We suggest you show your parents this website and inform them that you would like some help. It is a good idead to tell them a basic and brief summary of your feelings and struggles. Often times just telling your parents you need someone to talk to is good enought. Remember they were once teenagers and they know how diffficult it can be at times.
