You are good enough PARENTs
your first session
During your first session we will go over you intake paperwork and sign releases. I would like you to have filled out the forms prior to meeting so we can dive in rather than spending lots of time on paperwork. Your first session will be 75 minutes so we can go over paperwork and I can get a better sense of what you need and how I can help. Your following sessions will be 50 minutes for individual sessions and 75 minutes for family/couple sessions once per week in order to build our relationship. Payment (credit card, Venmo) is collected at the end of your session.
I have a Psychodynamic, Family Systems, and Attachment Theory based approach. Wow that was a lot of jargon! So what does that mean? Basically, I use the client-therapist relationship to create change. I am not a fan of worksheets, homework (shudder), or techniques that require thousands of dollars to become certified. Scientific studies on therapeutic outcomes (ie the client gets better) show the main catalyst for change is the client-therapist relationship. You will gain a better understanding of the way your family communicates and learn healthier methods of being in relationship with family members.
Telehealth provides convenience for clients and therapists. Clients are able to connect with a therapist more easily. Telehealth fits better into our lives and presents the same positive outcomes as in-person treatment. I am providing Telehealth Only services. I meet with clients via a secure video conferencing platform. I use a HIPAA compliant phone to call clients if the video conferencing is not working. Clients need access to a private space, headphones are recommended, and a decent internet connection.
