Our Approach

At Dr. Stephen Oreski & Associates, we see each client as an individual. We work with each client to develop a counseling plan tailored to their individual needs.

By working together, we foster a supportive and understanding environment that empowers you to overcome life’s challenges. Respect is paramount in our approach, as we acknowledge and honor the distinctiveness of every individual. We focus on identifying your strengths, validating your experiences, and truly comprehending your personal stories.

During our dedicated sessions, we prioritize your well-being and cater to your specific requirements. Our approach involves asking insightful questions, actively listening, and offering perspective and feedback within a safe, judgment-free space.

This process enables you to uncover hindering behaviors and thought patterns. Together, we will determine the necessary adjustments you can make to achieve the desired outcomes in your life.

How Therapy Works

Therapy succeeds through persistent, gentle consideration and exploration of the body-mind, soul, and spirit expressed in thought, emotion, feeling awareness, and the sense of self. Our approach is that therapy is not something that is done ‘to’ you: it is a shared collaborative experience between the therapist, who can provide an objective and empathic perspective, and the client, who holds the expert status of their own experience. Our therapists are trained in various approaches, such as the Psychodynamic and Family Systems approach and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These allow us to tailor the psychotherapy experience to meet your particular needs and emotional concerns. Rather than trying to match the client to a therapy, we would match the psychotherapy to the client.

Our expertise lies in developing and customizing the most effective therapy or combination of therapies for you. Whether you are an individual, a couple, or a family, we value the therapeutic relationship and are open to sharing our own life experiences and insights when appropriate.

Through empathy and acceptance, you will experience profound healing that leads to happiness, joy, satisfaction, and the fulfillment of your true potential in life.

Together, we will foster new insights, discover strengths, identify helpful strategies, and translate them into meaningful and lasting change.

What to Expect from Your First Individual Therapy Session?

In your initial therapy appointment, you will meet with your individual therapist. This session will focus on understanding your therapy goals and building a collaborative therapeutic relationship. It’s also an opportunity to discuss the frequency of future visits and what you can expect from them.

What should I expect from ongoing individual therapy?

During the initial sessions, you and your therapist will work together to establish your therapy goals, which will guide your journey together. Throughout your time with Dr. Stephen Oreski & Associates, our client care coordination team will check in with you to monitor your progress, evaluate what is working well, and identify areas for improvement. We encourage you to share any thoughts or concerns you may have.

How frequently will I have appointments?

Our clinicians recommend weekly appointments until you have achieved your initial therapy goals. However, the frequency may vary depending on your individual needs, and you and your therapist will collaboratively determine the optimal schedule for your care.
