Therapy and You Is therapy for depression the right treatment for you? Watch the video above to learn what to expect from therapy,\u00a0or read the\u00a0written summary below. What to Expect Your first session will likely be an intake session. You and your therapist will set goals, discuss why you are going to therapy, and what you're looking to get out of therapy. Try to set some goals prior to your first session, so you know exactly what to tell your therapist about what you want and need from this experience. Therapy sessions are typically 40 minutes to an hour. The frequency is going to depend on what kind of therapy you're choosing. You will work on a certain behavior and your therapist will give\u00a0you homework. You work on that in your day-to-day life, and then you talk to your therapist about how that went. Set Goals Setting goals is really going to impact how successful your therapy is, so do that with yourself and with your therapist.
