During our first intake appoitment we will discuss what brings you to therapy, the goals you would like to focus on and accomplish. I will gather some background information and together we will determine how we want treatment to look like in order for you to feel you are thriving.
During our first session, the three of us will meet together and discuss the decision to purse couples counseling. I like to meet separately with each partner before we resume all together for the fourth session where we will determine common goals and desire to resolve conflict.
I have found that the free 15 minute calls do not provide enough time for us to get a sense of how we can work together. As part of a successful treatment, I have implemented the 45 minute intake session which clients find more rewarding.
