RUSCHELLE KHANNA: LCSW
LYME DISEASE, ENTREPRENEURS, STRESS, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, RELATIONSHIPS
RUSCHELLE believes that therapy is a collaborative creative process where work is done together to find solutions to problems in order find ways to live our best life. She also believe that clients have an innate ability to heal. To her, a therapy session is a time of joint collaboration and exploration.
Many of Ruschelle’s clients are entrepreneurs and executives, suffer from the emotional stresses of Lyme disease, or are just seeking support in their day-to-day, overactive lives. Her presence and guidance during sessions is valuable, sometimes sharing her own personal experience with Lyme, or as an active and seasoned investor and entrepreneur involved in venture capital. She works with each client on a case-to-case basis, assessing their individual preferences and needs.
Therapy is really what you make of it and a session is your hour to focus on what matters most to you. It can be a place of expression, problem solving or self-discovery. Therapy does not have to be about past traumas (although it can be), is a time for curiosity about what it means to be alive and comes with laughter, tears and everything in between.
Therapy works best when you commit to it, with the recommendation of between six to nine months for lasting change. Although some clients feel that shorter periods of between six to eight sessions are effective. Each client varies, depending on their focus (anxiety, depression or relationship changes, etc.). If you’re seeking hypnotherapy, this timeline vary.
Each first session will begin with a series of questions about you that can last about 40 minutes. The rest of the first session will be a chance for us to try out some therapeutic styles and see how best we might work together. You might even leave with homework. A journal could be super helpful and many clients use one during the session in order to keep track of progress. If you have any medical documents you’d like to share, please bring those.
