To begin, your first appointment will be an Assessment in which you will be asked a series of questions and discuss what you want to
achieve from therapy or counseling. During your Assessment, you will set goals that you want to achieve. An Assessment is a longer
than a counseling session. Assessments are scheduled during day time hours only. They are two hour blocks, the first hour you spend
with your therapist and the second hour your therapist will evaluate the information gathered and develop a treatment plan to help
you achieve your goals. Then your sessions thereafter will be regular scheduled weekly appointments to fit your availability.
Individual counseling provides an opportunity for you to openly talk about your thoughts and concerns in a private environment.
Individual counseling is a direct, active, and personal approach that focuses on increasing your individual self-awareness,
understanding, and adjustment. You are able to identify the most effective ways to achieve your desired goals, as well as provide you
with the tools to cope with difficult circumstances that may arise along the way. Together we work on your concerns or issues.
Couples counseling is beneficial to those interested in improving their relationships. We have experience working with a diverse
range of couples from various racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity, and spiritual backgrounds. Couples can be married or
dating. Your weekly sessions may change according to your needs in that you may sometimes be seen individually or together.
Group Therapy is a powerful venue for growth and change. It allows individuals the opportunity to learn with and from others that
have the same problems. In addition, working in a group offers lower counseling fees. We offer many different Groups. However,
when there are requests from several clients made with the same issues, a group will be formed. Often an Individual Assessment is
required prior to joining a Group.
