How does the initial telephone consultation work?
Our free initial telephone consultation allows prospective clients to get a glimpse of a psychotherapy session before making a commitment. At the appointed time, your consultation therapist will call you at the phone number you provide. You will be given an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the psychotherapeutic process. Your consultation therapist will discuss your situation with you, and the two of you will explore whether psychotherapy is likely to assist you in meeting your goals.
What happens during the first psychotherapy session?
We ask that you come to the office 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete paperwork. Your therapist will then meet with you for 50 minutes (for a standard session) or 100 minutes (for an extended session). During this time, you can discuss your concerns, and your therapist will develop an individualized treatment plan to assist you in dealing appropriately with your concerns.
