How Therapy Works with Dr. Amee Dassani
In our first few sessions, we will gather information in regards to your family relationships and background. We will work together to understand your life problems and what factors of your life contribute to these issues, which seem ongoing. This information will guide the process of therapy and I will offer strategies to give you some relief. Initially, I will be getting to know you and understand your problems and difficulties. I am very open and non-judgmental. I strive to make you as comfortable as possible during this process. We will examine your family relationships and patterns. What are areas that you feel stuck in? In addition, we will examine some of your core beliefs and how these have impacted you. My intention is for you to live to your highest potential. Uncovering the blocks to this will help me find strategies to help you live in more joy and less distress. Some of these core beliefs may bring you some more pain and sadness initially, but we will work through them to resolve these emotions as they come up.
In some cases, therapy involves recommendations to other professionals such as physicians, psychiatrists, etc.. While these recommendations are not requirements, they may be necessary for you to fully recover and avoid serious difficulties.
It is important for you to work with a therapist who you feel completely comfortable with, if you have any concerns, I am happy to offer referrals to a therapist better suited to your needs.
