How many sessions will I need?

The pacing of the work is crucial and you will discuss this with Liz as you meet.
Scheduling is often weekly in the beginning. Many variables influence the scheduling of sessions, often it will be every two weeks or longer if that works best.

How long does a session last?

A session is an hour long.

What if I need to take a break?

The work may be a few sessions or many, each person varies. It is not uncommon to take a break from therapy and to return as needed.   We may sprain our ankle, get seriously ill, or get a cold more than once in a lifetime, and that does not stop us from seeking help. Mental health should be no different.
