What is your style as a therapist?

As a therapist, I work collaboratively with you. I tend to be interactive-asking questions at times, providing feedback, or making suggestions.

The first few sessions are devoted to evaluation and getting to know you. At the first session I will attempt to get a sense of the problem from your perspective, and by the end of that session, I will give you my initial comments, including what I am hearing as the problem or issue that brings you to therapy, what your goals are for therapy, and how I suggest we may achieve these goals.

Periodically throughout our work together, we will refer back to these goals and our treatment plan to assess our progress. Therapy concludes when you feel that you have made satisfactory progress toward your therapy goals.
