What are common myths about therapy?

While some parts of the therapy process may be completely novel – like the paperwork and intake process – there are other areas in which patients are simply misinformed entirely. We asked Dr. Jackson to list some myths about therapy that should be debunked. She stated these, but there are certainly more: “Problems can be solved in a couple of sessions or, on the contrary, that it takes years of therapy before you feel better,” “Therapists prescribe medication,” “Therapy only focuses on problems and/or the past,” “That you’ll leave each session feeling better,” “That therapists will tell you what to do,” and “Therapy is just talk.”
