Drive-By Therapy

A Single Session Could Help if You:

• Have a very specific problem, such as a new health diagnosis.
• Wonder if a particular situation and your reaction to it is normal.
• Have dealt successfully with life problems in the past.
• Have faith that your trouble could be addressed by a brief intervention.

Longer-Term Therapy is a Better Bet if You:

• Want to understand your patterns of behavior and how they developed.
• Have had repeated difficulties with family and romantic relationships.
• Would like to accomplish more, but consistently shoot yourself in the foot.
• Are suicidal, psychotic, or suffer from a condition requiring medication.
