Crisis therapy is aimed at helping you come up with an immediate solution to the crisis at hand. That may include a referral for medication and/or a change in location or situation. Sometimes a short leave from a stressful work situation with intense therapy can provide a job saving solution, for example. Often, people experience some measure of relief from the first session after making an appointment for traditional counseling or therapy. Then weekly sessions are effective to gradually help folks change.
The value of therapy is that people make permanent changes in their thinking & then practice skills that reduce problem behaviors and thoughts with no side effects and no long term health concerns. There are many benefits to therapy that are emotional, financial, physical and spiritual. (See if there’s a therapist near you.)
