Consultation consists of 2-4 meetings to clarify your concerns and needs. During these appointments I will assess your current concerns and some background history in order to recommend a treatment that suits your needs. There are many different kinds of psychotherapy and styles of therapists. I will assist you in sorting though the options and offer my recommendations. If I do not offer the type of treatment that I recommend for your situation, I will provide you with the names of colleagues who do.
I offer both short-term and longer-term psychotherapy. After our first few sessions I will discuss my impressions of what our work may include based on how I understand your goals and needs. I value collaboration in the psychotherapy relationship, and I encourage you to share your opinions and preferences about your experience with me. If you decide to continue with therapy with me, we will regularly discuss your goals for therapy and how to meet those goals.
