Many different situations may bring an individual to therapy. However, what is true in all is that we seek a change. That change may involve activating unrecognized internal resources, adding additional skills, or working through the steps needed for external changes. Individual therapy is a relationship between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life. While therapy can be brief (only a few sessions in some cases), after the initial adjustment many people find they enjoy the journey and may pursue ongoing psychotherapy as a means of self-growth.
Our preferred first step in the client intake process is to have a quick phone consult to make sure we're a good match, cover some general information, and answer any of your questions.

At Stonetree Therapy our therapists are experts in systems therapy which considers the unique patterns and personality that sometimes makes enacting fundamental skills difficult. We look at these patterns and your personal histories to reorder the way interactions are occurring. The average number of sessions for couple's therapy is typically around 12-15 sessions although this obviously is affected by how long the issues that are of concern to you have been present and the willingness of both partners to engage in the process.
There are no magic wands in couple's therapy but there is decades of research and best practice.
Hypnosis is a very useful tool to enhance the effectiveness and positive outcomes of a variety of medical, surgical, dental or psychological treatments. It is said that over 85% of all medical illnesses have an emotional component, and it is well known that emotional issues can create or contribute to physical problems which may not be completely addressed with conventional treatments. With a trained practitioner clinical hypnosis can be a unique, safe, and holistic approach to change and healing.
