What to Expect

Free Phone Consultation

New clients have the opportunity to book a free 10-15 minute consultation to determine if we can help you and, if so, for you to learn more about the process.

The Assessment / Intake Appointments

Before therapy can begin a detailed intake appointment is necessary. This process usually takes 1-2 sessions at which time clients are carefully evaluated to identify the nature and severity of presenting problems. Some relevant background information is also collected and discussed. By the end of the intake, specific therapeutic goals are collaboratively set and a treatment plan is developed.


Subsequent Appointments

The number and frequency of sessions will vary depending on the client’s individual needs, the stage of therapy (i.e., more frequent at the beginning), and the nature of the problem being addressed.
