WHAT TO EXPECT

Good treatment starts with a thorough assessment. The first session of individual therapy involves a thorough assessment of your concerns and goals. It also gives you the opportunity to determine if we feel like the right fit for you. We then shift our focus to working on your goals. Subsequently, we solidify progress you make and work towards ensuring long-term change.

 

Assessment Phase:

During the first two to three sessions we will focus on assessing in-detail the reasons and circumstances surrounding your concerns. You may complete some different measures, have us talk to family or a friend if you think it would be helpful, and/or have us connect with previous treatment providers. Our goal is to strike a balance between getting enough information to be helpful while also not overdoing it. We get that it can be a lot of work to start with a new counselor. At times, we will discuss if counseling is right for you or if something else might be more helpful for meeting your goals.

 

Treatment Phase:

Typical treatment can take around 20 sessions and will be tailored to your specific needs. Most importantly, we want to be sure your unique needs are cared for; therefore, it is hard to predict exactly how long treatment will be until we unpack all the important factors of what is going on in your life. We will use evidence-based practices, but the most important thing to us is that you feel safe and open to work on what you need to address. 

 

Maintenance Phase:

After you have met your goals, it may be important to check-in from time to time. Some people find that they want to meet every week, then once their goals are made, be all the way done. Others find it helpful to shift to checking in less regularly but still planning in booster sessions to make sure they stay on track.
