If you are considering starting individual therapy, I would look forward to talking with you. In general, I meet with clients in individual therapy who express concern about of a variety of issues, many of which are listed here.
I offer brief and long term individual therapy and consultation. Regular appointments are generally 50-55 minutes in length; the initial intake appointment is generally slightly longer, between 50-75 minutes. I view the first few sessions as a consultation period where we have the chance to figure out how we may work together. During this initial consultation period, I will collaborate with you to make recommendations for your therapy as far as meeting frequency and possible duration and will encourage you to reflect on whether this feels like a good fit for you. At times, I refer clients to other adjunct treatment providers depending on your individual needs; if you wish, I would be glad to collaborate with other providers who are involved with your care.
Before setting up an initial appointment, I would hope to speak with you by phone for a brief 10-15 minute consultation to get a sense of your particular concerns and answer any general questions you may have. You can find out more about my therapeutic approach here, and get answers to questions about fees and insurance here. Appointments are available Monday-Thursday from 9am-7pm.
