The counseling process begins with a free 15 minute consultation where you can share a little about what you need help with. This call is confidential, and we can discuss setting up a date/time to meet in person or have an online teletherapy session.
The first session will be used to gather your history as well as more information about the problem and how it has been affecting your quality of life. Examples of common problems I treat include depression, mood disorders including Bipolar, anxiety, trauma, childhood abuse, codependency, marital issues, anger management, career transitions, and major life changes. The time frame of the therapy process is open and can range anywhere from a few months to a year or more.
Whether you are looking for individual, couples or family therapy, every session will be confidential and you will be provided with forms of consent for the therapy process at the time of the first meeting.
In regards to couples counseling, the first session will include both partners however there will be individual sessions with each client as the therapy progresses to identify each client’s needs and desires for the relationship. The majority of the sessions will be both partners, and the average length of couples therapy is six months to one year.
Therapy can also be conducted by video teletherapy on a HIPPA compliant platform if you are traveling or cannot physically make a session for any reason.
Therapy is terminated when the client feels ready to move forward with more confidence and a sense of wellness. Often clients know instinctively when they are ready to end therapy, and I work to make transition to end therapy as smooth as possible. “Check in” sessions following termination are common, and I will be happy to help assist in future sessions in any way I can.
