What To Expect
When you call the main number, we will discuss what your needs are and make sure we are the right fit for you. We will match you to a therapist who is most experienced to help you. We will help you identify what services best fit you, and If we are not the best fit we will recommend someone who is.
You will schedule your first appointment directly with your counselor. Each counselor maintains their schedule independently. On top of regular business hours, some counselors offer nights, some offer weekends. Let us know what days/nights/weekend works best for your family and we can make sure we match you with a counselor that shares that schedule.
During your first session you will establish a trusting relationship with your counselor, explore the history of your struggle, and create goals that will guide your journey. It is important to have a good personality fit, meaning you can feel safe and vulnerable with your counselor. For couple's therapy, the first session is with the couple together, followed by two individual sessions, one with each. If you have questions please give us a call.
We perform intake assessments; these assessments help us give a diagnostic impression and recommendations for future therapy.
The intake process consists of: 1) Parent Intake (the child not present), 2) Child Intake (counselor and child alone), 3) Family session / family play therapy, followed by 4) treatment planning and parental consultation .
Frequency of treatment, clarification of goals, and proportion of individual/family/parental sessions is determined in the treatment planning session.
The cadence and longevity of treatment is determined by the goals and the struggle at hand. At times only a few sessions are required, in other situations a long term counseling relationship is needed. As counselors we have a unique task to help you not need us anymore; we work to assist you to feel strong in handling your struggle on your own.
Is to help you and your family to be the best versions of yourselves. We do not aim to change who you are or what you believe. We meet you where you are, follow the goals you create, and assist you to reach those goals within a healthy safe counseling relationship.
