Motivational interviewing is part of a category of psychotherapeutic approaches called brief therapy. Brief therapies are just that—brief! Motivational interviewing is ideal for women who already have a high level of insight and self-awareness and are looking for practical ways to apply it. We focus less on your past causes of dysfunctional behavior and more on solutions and related life skills. It’s highly useful when addressing behaviors like drug and alcohol abuse. Our therapists can help you explore why you are engaging in destructive behavior.
Successful motivational interviewing requires that you build a strong relationship with your therapist. When you feel comfortable enough to share sensitive experiences that may have caused pain in your life, you begin to heal. Our therapists know that being willing and ready to change comes from within and can’t be forced. It’s a cooperative and collaborative process that honors your freedom of choice.
