In the initial sessions, I want to learn about you and your journey including important life events and experiences as well as current symptoms and struggles. I am interested in understanding what prompted you to seek counseling and why you have chosen at this time to take this step. I also want outline your needs and identify what you hope to accomplish during our work together. In addition, I want to ensure that you feel comfortable with me and my approach. It is important that we are a good “fit” so that your experience with me will be rewarding. We will also discuss confidentiality, review completed paperwork and develop your goals for our time together. These goals will be specific, measurable, and time limited so that they will be realistically achievable.
Subsequent sessions will focus on addressing your goals and making changes as needed along the way. Different interventions may be utilized during our time together. With regards to modalities, I provide individual, family, and couples counseling. My ultimate goal with you will be to help you achieve your goals as you see fit so that we can successfully terminate our time together.
