Types of Therapy Sessions
This is the most common type of therapy session. You come to one of our offices—in San Francisco or Oakland and meet with your therapist there. Sessions are typically 50-minnutes long and occur once a week, multiple times a week, or every other week.
We know that in today’s fast-paced world, it’s often difficult to make time for self-care. Therefore, we also offer online therapy through video or phone to help you fit your psychological health care into your busy schedule. Another option is to alternate between online therapy and in-office sessions, depending on your specific needs.
Therapy Outside of the Office
If your situation warrants it, we also provide therapy outside the office. For example, if you struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), hoarding, or social anxiety, we may conduct therapy-assisted exposures and accompany you to the location or situation that you fear. Practicing exposure in the real world is the most effective and efficient way to overcome OCD, hoarding, social anxiety, and specific phobias. In this form of exposure treatment, your therapist will go with you to the feared location or situation, such as driving on a bridge, going to a crowded shopping mall, or visiting a dog park, and provide you with the coaching you need in the moment. This helps you develop the tools you need to cope more effectively with your anxiety on your own.
We're offering free and low fee therapy for a limited time to individuals who are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic who can't afford therapy.
