Here’s how it will work step-by-step:

  1. First, your therapist will provide a safe, accepting space so that you will feel comfortable sharing your experience and struggles with them.
  2. Through working with you (and your loved one if desired) your therapist will start to get a picture of what your specific struggles are.
