Psychotherapy is a voluntary process which involves examining and changing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Successful therapy involves a commitment to this process, often including regular sessions (typically weekly or biweekly). Successful therapy also requires you and possibly your support persons or other providers, to be actively involved in session and homework between sessions.
Treatment at Roamers Therapy begins with an assessment. This assessments determines if Roamers Therapy is able to provide treatment appropriate to your needs. Based on this assessment, your therapist may recommend further assessment/services to other providers, including psychiatric evaluation, a psychological evaluation, substance abuse evaluation, couples assessment, or medical evaluation. Completing these recommendations is voluntary, but may help your treatment to be effective by providing additional insight.
Roamers Therapy is able to provide multiple styles of therapy which include individual psychotherapy, couples therapy, and online therapy. At the end of the assessment your therapist will discuss which type is recommended based on your assessment and response to treatment. It is up to you if you decide to engage in the recommended treatment, but Roamers Therapy may decline to offer further services if you decline recommended services.
Potential benefits of therapy include obtaining a professional guidance and change troubling thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Risk of therapy include confronting difficult emotions, memories, or conversations. Any negative response to treatment should be shared with your therapist.
