How will the therapy process work?
Our first few sessions will evaluate your needs, and for me to obtain information from you about your background and what you have already tried to cope with your problems. By the end of the evaluation, I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue working with me. You should evaluate this information along with your own opinions of whether you feel comfortable working with me. Therapy involves a large commitment of time, money and energy, so you should be careful about the therapist you select. If you have questions about my procedures, we should discuss them whenever they arise.
If we agree to begin treatment, I may recommend that we meet in 45 minute sessions at a frequency anywhere from one to five times/week. Of course, you are free to disagree with my view, in which case we would negotiate a mutually agreed upon frequency schedule.
