So how does all of this work?
We begin with a 30 minute phone consultation so you get a feel for how we work and we can understand more about your needs. This is an opportunity for you to ask anything you want and also to address concerns about what you are going through, the therapeutic process, financials, etc.
You can ask about anything.
Having the opportunity to speak to a professional for support – free of charge – for up to a half hour is invaluable. It’s an opportunity to see if working together would work. You will immediately get the sense that we are compassionate and understanding. Our therapists aim to offer concrete skills and care in every session.
The Road Map
When you come in for the initial intake we meet for 1.5 hours. We will get a history of your experience, assess your current place in life and also get a sense of who you are as a person. As that is happening our first action together is to get a sense of your needs, work to build a conversation guided by scientifically based first-line treatments, all while maintaining your integrity and tailoring the plan to your unique situation.
Therapy is problem solving.
We will discuss your goals and intentions for entering therapy. We will discuss this together and we help you set up a framework of understanding so you already feel comfortable on the first day.
Research shows that talk therapy is the best path to resolution.
We not only act as a therapist, but we are also your advocate and go-to person for support and direction along the steps you take. You can learn how to address and accomplish goals. We will make sure you have all the necessary components to strengthening your life.
Collaborate your needs.
We will collaborate with your primary care physician and associated providers to assure stability along the way and appropriate therapeutic treatment based on your history and needs.
Additionally, we have a wide array of resources available including educational opportunities, doctors who understand, dietitians that won’t trigger behaviors, books, articles, programming and other means to help you if called upon. We will make sure to go to whatever length it takes to help you feel secure and supported as you work to achieve your goals.
