Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We begin by gathering basic information as well as other pertinent information relative to the issue at hand. Next, we discuss our options and choices for therapy. Next, we think about what your goals are for therapy as well aswas a plan accomplish those goals while in therapy. We evaluate progress with those goals in an ongoing basis. I practice Brief Therapy. The average length is 10 Sessions. Most often, issues are resolved during this time. If "we" (the client and I) decide there are new goals, we continue.
