In individual therapy we work together as a team to develop a plan of action that will address your needs. Since these needs are constantly changing, each session is adapted to address whatever theme arises for that day but still works towards your overall goals. The first appointment is an intake appointment and is used to gather information about your presenting problem and includes your family history, medical history, current symptoms and your vision of what you want treatment to look like for you. This appointment is usually 60 minutes and also goes over practice policies, procedures and confidentiality. Follow-up sessions vary from 50-55 minutes. Individual therapy can be just talking through problems or may include handouts and homework depending on your preference.
