Therapy Designed for You

Consultation:

The initial consultation consists of an hour appointment designed to discuss the issues and concerns the client has in order to determine if the client and therapist can work together. No diagnosis is given. Recommendations regarding therapy options are given so the client may decide how to proceed with therapy.

Initial Appointment/Assessment/Evaluation:

This process is 1-6 sessions long and involves getting history and familiarity with the client and their life situation. A diagnosis is given. A more clear picture of treatment is seen and discussed.

Psychotherapy:

Psychotherapy sessions usually occur once a week, with some clients needing or wanting up to 3 sessions a week. Some clients are seen every other week or on an as needed basis, depending on their situation. The advantage to more frequent sessions is increased ability to work together. The more you work together the better you become at understanding and resolving the issue. Meeting every week is recommended as it builds the relationship faster.

Marriage Therapy:

Marriage Therapy is when both partners in the relationship come to therapy to work on their issues together. There are many reasons couples end up in therapy together. The most common issue worked on is communication. The issues are explored with the therapist so goals of treatment can be determined. Marriage therapy may be scheduled every week or every other week.

Treatment for Older Children and Adolescents:

This is very similar to psychotherapy with adults. The difference is parents are involved. Children have a right to privacy and confidentiality while keeping their parents involved.
