What to expect

After you call to arrange an appointment, your first meeting will be an assessment session. This assessment session will last for fifty minutes and will provide an opportunity for you to convey some of the reasons which have brought you to therapy. The assessment session will also give you a chance to decide if you would like to engage in personal therapy and how you would like to proceed.

Regardless of whether or not you decide to engage in personal therapy, after the assessment has been completed (which usually takes 1-2 sessions), you will be given the option to receive an assessment report. The assessment report will document the material covered in the session and will present a psychological formulation. This will be yours to keep, as a reminder and potentially an aid for your development and understanding of yourself.

If you decide to begin personal therapy, therapeutic sessions will always last for fifty minutes (unless specified otherwise) and are usually arranged for the same day and time each week. If you are unable to attend your appointment please call to cancel or reschedule. If you are unable to provide notice for a cancellation within five days, you will still be charged for the session.
