Entering into psychotherapy takes courage. Psychotherapy involves discussing those painful aspects of your life that obstruct your happiness. Through the therapeutic process we work together to reach your goals whatever they are. Often people come to us with the hope of overcoming depression or anxiety, gaining control of stress, building a stronger self-esteem, healing a troubled relationship or simply to find peace of mind.
Psychotherapy requires a very active participation on your part and trust in your therapist.
To be most successful, we will all work hard and you will not be alone.

What to expect during your scheduled appointment
• Face to Face or by Telephone or Skype. We will meet in the relaxed home-like setting of the office, or, if that’s not possible, use the convenience of tele-conferencing.
• Your potential therapist will listen to your story in depth, to what you are looking for and hope to find through therapy.
• Answer Your Questions. We will discuss any further questions you have about the practice, office policies or your therapist's approach.
• Goals. If we decide we're a good fit and want to continue working together we determine your goals for treatment and create your individualized treatment plan.
Extending the Session. Throughout the course of therapy, we will often design ‘homework’ to help stretch the effectiveness of the session.
Sessions are typically 50 minutes. Occasionally we may schedule a 90 or two-hour session to address a special topic.
