What to should I expect over the course of therapy?
You will be asked to arrive about 15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete an intake packet (unless other arrangements have been made).
Upon completion of the paperwork, we will review the content of the intake packet (including biographical information) and have a discussion regarding areas in which you would like to focus on so that we can create clear goals for yourself in treatment.
Generally, therapy sessions are 50 minutes in duration, one time per week. (Other arrangements can be made, if clinically needed).
The first few sessions are spent gathering information, and further evaluating your needs so that we can determine the best course of treatment for you to meet your identified goals.. The therapeutic techniques utilized and length of treatment will be dependent on your needs and/or the needs of your child.
Over the course of treatment, together, we can address your past, present, and future over the course of our work, if you choose. Each session will be tailored to your individual needs and concerns..
Towards the end of treatment, I will discuss with you my clinical recommendations and concerns, and we will have an open discussion to address preparation for termination of services.
