First Meeting: During the first meeting we will sit together and one of our therapists will answer all questions you might have. We can also begin to assess whether our skills, philosophy and personality are a good match for what you and/or your child may need. Last, we will review my practice policies and also discuss payment options.
Initial Assessment and Treatment Planning: During our second meeting we will begin to listen more deeply to your present concerns. Here we will decide on what goals need to be addressed in treatment together.
Individual Therapy Adult/Adolescent: During each session we will provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, intentions, and actions. Our approach is eclectic, and includes, but is not limited to client-directed/outcome based; cognitive behavioral (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy. Therapy will be individualized to your specific needs, we rely on you to guide us through every step you take in your therapy, while we offer suggestions and insights. Regularly we will talk about how you are progressing and you. This will help ensure that what we are doing really is helping you and that you are seeing an overall better you.
Child Therapy: Child counseling and parent consultation is provided within a warm, open environment. This form of therapy involves working individually with a child and using play therapy techniques to help assist them in identifying their problems and concerns. The goal is to help them learn to experience and express a wide range of emotion, learn new social skills and be more empathetic and responsible. We believe that parents are a very important part of the process, which is why they will be consulted during each session to provide feedback on how the child is responding and reinforce the therapy process at home.
Couples/Family Therapy: Our work with couples/families is based on the practice and notion that relationships function best when clients know themselves, communicate well, and are able to manage stress and conflict together. The goal is to create a safe environment where new communication skills can be practiced and learned and where forgiveness and strength can be nurtured and grown.
