What to Expect
We’ll start with a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and so I can answer any questions for you. From there, we can schedule our first intake session, where I’ll provide a thorough assessment. This will give you us a chance to get to know each other better. The assessment will allow me to get a deeper understanding of your goals for treatment and your mental health history. Prior to our first appointment, I will ask you to complete intake paperwork that outlines your psychiatric history. After our initial assessment, we’ll develop a unique treatment plan that is tailored to you to specifically address your goals. We’ll schedule follow up weekly sessions and monitor progress on a weekly basis. This will help us determine how you’re responding to treatment and gives us a chance to make changes if needed.
Your Role in Therapy
I will ask you to take an active role in your treatment. I provide a variety of treatment options in addition to individual therapy, which may include reading suggestions, exercises, and homework assignments. These supplemental activities will empower you e to practice managing your symptoms, and strengthens the results of therapy.
