What should I expect from my first appointment?
The first appointment is an opportunity for you to share the reason for seeking counseling and what you hope to accomplish during your time in therapy. Among many topics, the therapist will spend time going over current symptoms, family dynamics, employment history, relationship status, educational background, stressors, strengths, medical and psychiatric history.
What is teletherapy?
Teletherapy is a therapy service that is provided through a live video connection, over the internet. We work to provide you with the same treatment that you would receive in person, however appointments are done through video. Our practice began utilizing teletherapy during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow our clients to receive services from the comfort and safety of their home. We continue to offer teletherapy services today.
