Getting Started in Therapy
Step 2 / Initial Evaluation
If we decide to work together during the phone consultation, then we will schedule an initial appointment. This appointment will allow us to get to know each other, explore your goals, and formulate a treatment plan. I will also ask you to complete questionnaires prior to our meeting.
Step 3 / Therapy
How long and how often we meet for therapy will depend on your goals and treatment plan. Most of my clients begin with weekly sessions and then taper to less frequent sessions as they progress towards their goals. We will regularly monitor and discuss your progress, and you have ultimate control over your treatment.
Please note: I am not qualified to work with clients needing acute treatment of substance abuse, eating disorders, autism spectrum disorders, or suicidal or violent behavior. I also do not provide evaluations for legal purposes (e.g., child custody cases; disability ).
