Length of psychotherapy

It may take only weeks to help you cope with a short-term situation. Or, treatment may last a year or longer if you have a long-term mental illness or other long-term concerns. The number of psychotherapy sessions you need, including the frequency of your sessions depends on some of the factors below:

Your particular diagnosis or situation

Severity of your symptoms

How long you’ve had symptoms or have been dealing with your situation

How quickly you make progress

How much stress you’re experiencing

How much your mental health concerns interfere with day-to-day life

How much support you receive from family members and others

Cost and insurance limitations

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
