Therapy begins with an initial diagnostic interview. At this session, I will ask you questions to further understand your current symptoms and issues. We will also touch on some personal historical information. You will get a chance to ask questions about the therapy process, how I work, and to see if we may be a good fit for one another. It is important that you are comfortable with me and think my style works well with yours. If not, I can help guide you to someone that you think may work better with you.
Next, we work together to set goals for your therapy. These goals are typically short term and long term goals and the address the issues of why you are currently seeing me. These goals can change overtime or therapy ends when these goals are completed.
Appointments are scheduled, as we together, determine the frequency. Usually therapy begins weekly for 4-6 weeks so that we get a chance to work together regularly then going to every other week depending on your concerns. Remember, you are in control of this process and how we proceed is up to you.
