How It Works
WE'RE HERE TO BEST SERVE YOUR THERAPEUTIC NEEDS.
Entering an intimate space with yourself is no easy task. But with the help of someone you trust, it makes the journey a bit easier to embrace.
Clients that work with CYE become empowered to place themselves back on their own priority list, confront experiences from their past - often trauma-related- and find ways to gain healthy perspectives and coping skills.

IT’S TIME THAT YOU EVOLVE:
Being bound by your past experiences that have caused you to question the essence of who you are because you didn't feel confident enough.
Taking ahold and reclaiming the peace and healing that is rightfully yours.
The feeling of being overwhelmed by internal and external pressures that either keep you stagnant or move you to anxiety.
Becoming more for yourself just like you do for everyone else.
Ignoring your essential needs and the importance of self-prioritization.
Pouring from a full cup and leaving enough left over to ensure you meet your wants and needs.
Limiting yourself in your professional life and therapeutic gifts.
Ready to create the life of your dreams by taking actionable steps in doing so.
In order to get you squared away with services here’s what you can expect in the initial process:

frequently asked questions
What is Therapy?Therapy can help people of all ages work through personal, relationship, family, and/or work/school challenges so that they can move on and enjoy a life that is productive and fulfilling. At Cultivate Your Essence, we view therapy as being collaborative and relational. We believe therapy is effective when there is a strong therapeutic relationship and good fit between the therapist and the client.
When should you seek therapy?You do not have to wait until something is “wrong” to seek therapy. As with any medical issue, prevention and maintenance of your health and well-being are key. You can seek therapy when you notice that there are areas of your life that you would like to improve, when you are feeling down or stuck, when you’d like to work through things that are bothering you from the past or in current situations. Here are a few examples when to seek therapy: You do not feel like yourself You feel angry, scared, sad, hopeless, anxious, irritable on a regular basis You have experienced a traumatic event that still impacts you You are having a hard time adjusting to a life transition and it’s affecting your personal and professional life - You want to break unhealthy patterns in your relationships

What can I expect in a first session?The first session is the intake session. In your first session, your therapist will review your paperwork with you and inform you about your client rights and responsibilities. Your therapist will ask you many questions during your first session because they want to make sure they understand your goals, concerns, day-to- day functioning, and your history. The first 1-2 sessions are more question heavy because your therapist really wants to get a sense of who you are and how your concerns are impacting you. Your therapist will also want to collaborate with you to identify your treatment goals.
How often should I attend sessions?This is very dependent on your therapeutic needs and your personal journey. While this determination is typically made from the initial intake session, we do recommend that clients make the investment into their mental wellness by attending session every week in the beginning of treatment for the first 3 months to build rapport their therapist and to be given adequate support in beginning treatment.
