Following the consultation, we will set up an intake appointment, either in person or virtually. I will send you an email with information about what forms in the client portal need to be completed at least 24 hours prior to your session. You also will receive an invoice for payment of your 1st session, which needs to be completed prior to the session.
My approach to treatment involves collaborative goal setting at both the onset and throughout therapy as well as actively discussing techniques that are found to be most helpful. Therapy often leads to improved relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in distress. Because therapy also involves discussing difficult aspects of your life, it can be uncomfortable approaching unpleasant thoughts and feelings as well as difficult to make changes to beliefs and behaviors. However, by working through these areas, it can lead to tremendous personal growth as well as resolution of long term issues.
The length of psychotherapy treatment varies considerably depending on the person and the nature of the person’s problem. It is difficult, if not impossible, to accurately pinpoint the amount of time it will take to experience relief. For those seeking relief from troublesome but straightforward problems, therapy can be effective in as little as 8 to 12 sessions. For more complex issues, therapy may last several months to several years.
