What is counseling?
When you contact us for help, we will get information from you about what you need. We have certain forms that need to be completed for us to learn about you and to help you if you are paying by insurance. We accept most major insurance company payments. You can ask for directions or print them from this site. We can email most of the forms to you, except a few insurance forms, so that you can complete them before you arrive. This will give us more time to talk at your first appointment.
When you arrive, you can take a seat in the lobby chairs or couch. Your counselor will be with you as soon as possible. During the first interview, your counselor will ask you for more information about who you are, what you need and how she can help. Some of your medical history is helpful to know what might be affecting you. A diagnosis will be made and discussed with you. You and your counselor will decide on a plan of action to help you. You will discuss what you are going to do and what the counselor is going to do. If needed, a safety plan will be started. As you start feeling better, the plan of action may change. A variety of techniques will be used including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive and behavioral therapies or other types of treatment that address your needs.
When the time comes, your counselor will help you decide if you have completed treatment and terminate services. Generally, if another issue comes up, your counselor will be available to help you again. It is our goal to see you through the difficult times and support your special talents and abilities as you build the best life you can.
