The decision to start therapy is a very personal one, and it is important that you feel we can work together well. I offer free 15 minute consultation services either on the telephone, through teleconference, or by e-mail. This allows you to meet me, ask about my approach, and get a sense of whether you feel I can be of assistance to you
The initial assessment session is typically about 75 minutes in length. In this meeting, I want to get a good sense of what you struggle with, what your strengths are, and what you hope to get out of therapy. It is an opportunity for you to ask me questions and for me to gather information about you, so that by the end of the session, we will have a preliminary therapy plan. If, at any point, we determine that other services may be a better fit for you, I will help you obtain assistance from appropriate providers.
Individual therapy sessions are typically 50 minutes in length. The number of sessions required will depend on the type of concerns you have and the level of change you desire. The number of sessions is flexible and we will work together to determine the therapy plan, modifying it as needed.
Trauma-focused therapy can look many different ways. One of the approaches that I utilize to help people process difficult experiences is Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). If it is determined that this approach is good fit for your needs, we will discuss this together and I can provide further information at that time. These sessions are often a bit longer than a typical therapy session (up to 90 minutes), so the fee charged will be based on time.
Group therapy programs typically involve weekly 75 minute sessions over 4 consecutive weeks.
Current groups include:
We often feel isolated when dealing with mental or physical health concerns, and connecting with others can be a key healing component of effective change-oriented therapy.
