Individual therapy starts with a 60 minute intake session where the discussion centers around your background as well as the current circumstances that have led you to seek out help. It also provides you with the opportunity to ask questions and determine if the therapist is a good fit for your personality and goals.
Practical matters such as informed consent/confidentiality, scheduling and frequency of visits will also be discussed during the first meeting. You will be invited to identify goals for our work together and can trust that whatever you want to say will be met with non-judgmental, respectful response. As your therapist, my goal is to guide you on the journey to greater life satisfaction by assisting you in removing obstacles and strengthening your inner resources. My expertise draws on a wide variety of treatment modalities and is grounded by a holistic approach that includes body, mind and spirit. This means you will not receive a one size fits all approach but can count on a custom tailored plan of action that takes into account all aspects of your life.
