What to expect when you come in...
In a therapy session, at first, we will spend some time getting acquainted. I will want to hear about what issues bring you in, about your current and past symptoms, some about your family history, and what has worked for you and what hasn't worked so well. I'd like to hear what other help you have already gotten in the past.
Once we have clearly identified the issues, we will make plans together about what ought to help you feel like you're functioning in a healthier ways. Some problems may be more easily treated when a medical doctor is also helping as well. Some problems do better when other family members are involved. Sometimes you may not want your family members involved, and that's okay too. Healing happens better in a partnership!
