Psychotherapy should ideally be a fun and interesting process of self-exploration. It is often helpful to have a neutral (but supportive) person with whom to discuss your concerns. You should be able to take away something helpful, whether an idea, concept, or a new way of looking at an issue or pattern in your life. It doesn't have to take forever - you should feel within the first session that the therapist generally "got it" and was able to say something helpful to you.

It is critical that you develop a connected and trusting relationship with your therapist. That you feel safe and understood. When this relationship is formed, healing often begins. I am very influenced by positive psychology and neuroscience (the science of the brain). The concept of neuro-plasticity - that our brains can heal and improve at every age - offers hope and a guide to achieving the changes we desire.
