Informed consent to the therapeutic process is discussed which includes information about potential risks and benefits of therapy as well as confidentiality standards.
The sessions I provide are 50-60 minutes in length. I can provide an invoice at any time to submit to your insurance for potential reimbursement.
My focus in therapy is understanding the person and the issues they want to address in therapy. This type of assessment is performed through a respectful dialogue allowing each person to share the amount and depth of information they choose over time. Establishing specific therapy goals can be helpful. The total number of therapy sessions needed for a person’s desired outcome is determined in a collaborative effort.
Therapy can be a challenging and rewarding experience that can promote overall mental, emotional and physical wellness.
