We all could use some support as we figure out how to navigate life.
There may be stages throughout our lives where we need more support and and better ways of coping in order to help to manage the day-to-day. At other times we may need help processing traumatic experiences in order to integrate these experiences into our lives in a way that feels right to us. For some, it may also be a general feeling of loss or emptiness, or another indicator that it's time to journey deep within the Self.
Exploring Psychotherapy may be right for you if you've been experiencing or have been diagnosed with:
- Dissociative Experiences
- Self Injury & Self-Harming
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

What to Expect
Beginning therapy can be a powerful step toward a deeper level of healing and self exploration. It can be an intense and meaningful process, and can at times be difficult and challenging. However, figuring out where to start can often be the most daunting part. Whether this is your first time exploring Psychotherapy or you have had experiences in the past, check out the list below as well as our FAQ page for some clarification about Enodia Center's policies and to shed some light on what you can expect.
The Sessions Are Just as Unique as You Are.
Everyone’s bodies are different, as are our minds, and we all navigate our experiences differently. Therapy sessions typically take place once per week for 50-90 minutes, with goals set 3 months at a time. However, the course and pace of therapy will be determined by you and your therapist based on what you hope to see. This can also be discussed at your complimentary consultation so you have an even clearer idea of what to expect.
In addition to talk therapy, we incorporate powerful non-verbal modes of healing such as Art Therapy, Active Imagination, and EMDR. Know that wherever you may find yourself, you and your life's circumstances will always be met with complete respect.
You Will Never Be Judged.
This is the core of the therapeutic relationship and part of what makes the therapeutic experience so unique. You are encouraged to express anything at all, and in return your therapist provides you a fully non-judgmental and safe space to do so.
Why this is so important: Sometimes when we experience something traumatic or painful, there’s a weight of shame and embarrassment that can come along with it. This can often be a barrier to seeking help and healing. At Enodia, we deeply understand this, and work with you at your own pace to process and heal. Wherever you may find yourself, we know that it’s part of your own personal journey.
Everything Remains in the Room.
It’s All About You. Always.
Although it can be extremely helpful to confide in a friend or loved one about what you’re going through, sometimes we just need someone to listen without trying to “fix it” or relating to a story about themselves. At Enodia, we firmly maintain that this is your time. The only information you should expect to receive from your therapist will always be directly related to you and your experiences.
We Respect Your Expertise.
Although we are experts in our field, you are the only expert in your life. Our role as your therapist is to help facilitate your personal healing and inner exploration. Your therapist will challenge you when appropriate, and support your limits; always with non-judgmental acceptance, scientifically-supported therapeutic techniques, and unwavering respect, so that you can create the change you want to see in your life.
