I offer both short-term counseling and longer-term psychotherapy with adults. After our first few sessions I will be able to offer you some impressions of what our work could include based on how I understand your goals and needs. My approach to the counseling/psychotherapy relationship is collaborative, and I encourage you to share with me your opinions and preferences about your experience. My goal is to help you feel comfortable about sharing what's most important to you and to assist you in getting you connected with someone who can help you meet your goals.
between 2-3 sessions
to discuss hopes for counseling and possible next steps, either for working on your own, participating in ongoing longer-term psychotherapy with me, and/or exploring other options (e.g., referral to other resources, including bibliotherapy, engaging in group therapy, meeting with other therapist who may be a better match for helping you meet your goals, etc.)
number and frequency of sessions varies (i.e., this decision is based upon your needs, goals, financial feasibility and a mutual agreement on what frquency best addresses these issues)
