We begin with a 30-minute phone consultation so you can get to know our practice, get a feel for how we work, and so we can understand more about your needs as well. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the therapeutic process, financials, etc.
Once you decide you’d like to begin working with us, we will schedule an initial intake. You will meet with one of clinicians for 1.5 hours for the initial clinical intake. During this time, we will obtain a history of your experiences, assess your current place in life, and get a sense of who you are as a person. We’ll learn more about your needs and goals and tailor your treatment plan to your individual situation.
Together we will discuss your goals and intentions for entering therapy. We will also help you develop an understanding of your needs so you feel comfortable.
We act not only as a therapist, but as your advocate and go-to person for support and direction while you learn how to address and accomplish your goals. We will make sure you have all the necessary components to strengthen your life.
We will work with your primary care physician and associated providers to ensure stability, continuity, and collaboration along the way and provide appropriate therapeutic treatment based on your history and needs.
Additionally, we have a wide array of resources available, including educational opportunities, doctor referrals, and dietitians who specialize in eating disorders, as well as lists of recommended books, articles, and programming, including potentially a higher level of care.
We provide individualized, focused care, expertise, and support from a holistic perspective. This includes evidence-based techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and other psychodynamic approaches.
