How long does therapy last?This depend on a number of factors, including your preferences, the recommendations of your therapist, and issue of scheduling and availability. The duration of therapy can also vary from weeks to months to years, depending on the type of goals you have, and the issues you are facing. Therapy sessions are 45 minutes long, and are initially scheduled weekly, in order to present the best opportunity for success.
