Your first appointment with a therapist is different from future sessions. Our initial visit allows you and your therapist to get to know each other. Your therapist will ask you about your history, usually going back between 6 months to 5 years, depending on your situation and your therapy goals. This will give us an idea of how to proceed.
We work with your medical team
If needed, your therapist will get your permission to work with your physician or psychiatrist.
We have a relationship with a local psychiatrist’s office. If required, we can coordinate with them, or your doctor, to get your medication management integrated with therapy very quickly.
Each of us is unique and your therapist will use effective, evidence-based therapy approaches that are best suited for your needs. In the initial session, once your therapist understands your challenges and goals, together you will create a plan that suits your needs. Fees and estimated sessions will be discussed so there are no surprises.
Psychotherapy may involve a short, but effective course of therapy. Many of our clients choose to continue to work on other topics or underlying issues after completing their original goals for therapy and continue with us for a longer period of time.
We are focused on helping you heal, energize, and use your inner strengths to create long-lasting positive change for your life. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and carrying out a customized treatment plan.
