Hey, I see you...
You do not have to be sick,
to feel better.
Deciding to receive therapy can feel scary for some. Meeting a new person and divulging personal information can make you feel vulnerable and exposed. Creating a safe space, where the patient feels comfortable and at ease is our top priority!
What to expect:
Much like when you first meet someone in a non-professional setting, our initially meeting will be about getting to know each other and making sure it is a good fit! Being comfortable with your therapist is a good indicator for the effectiveness of treatment. The initial meeting or intake is used to gather a comprehensive history so the clinician can better understand the patient and begin to form an idea of what the course of treatment may look like. This is also a good time for the patient to gauge how they feel about the clinician.
Subsequent sessions will include psychoeducation, therapeutic processes, and interventions based on the patients overall goals for therapy.
