Your Questions Answered

Everyone has questions about counseling. Most people who seek psychological consultation want to know how serious their problems or symptoms are, what caused them, and whether they can change or improve their lives.

The seriousness or severity of your problems are proportional to the degree to which they prevent you from achieving your goals in life, prevent you from experiencing pleasure, or cause pain and suffering. Dr. Angioli can help identify precipitant or triggering events and factors that maintain your difficulties following the initial evaluation phase of therapy. Almost everyone can improve their quality of life by resolving self-defeating problems, symptoms, and behaviors. It does take commitment, hard work and motivation to change the habits that support those behaviors. With Dr. Angioli's help, you will find resolutions that work for you.

Session Details

The length of counseling varies. Sometimes, counseling is limited to a fixed number of sessions, often referred to as brief therapy or "time-sensitive" therapy. Brief therapy usually runs between 7 and 10 sessions. Some individuals benefit from 5 to 7 sessions, while others may require more visits to resolve the identified problems. For this reason, it may be counterproductive to place restrictive time limits on counseling. Dr. Angioli works with you to jointly evaluate your needs and progress on a regular basis in order to determine if your counseling experience is working for you.
