STEP 1: Book A Consult Call
Maybe you're ready to jump right in. Or maybe you have a few questions you need answered before moving forward. Either way, I offer a complimentary 30-minute consult call to discuss your concerns, answer any questions you might have, and figure out whether it's a good fit to move forward.
STEP 2: Intake Assessment
The first step in alleviating any issue, is to first get clear on the problem. And therapeutic intervention is no exception. The first one to three sessions typically focus on getting clear on your presenting concerns, contributing and maintaining factors, and create a treatment plan together.
STEP 3: Intervention
The bulk of our time together will focus on providing evidence-based interventions, tools, and strategies to assist you, your child, and your family in meeting your treatment goals. Depending on the issues and type of therapy provided, there may be any combination of child only, parent only, and parent-child sessions. And treatment goal reviews and progress updates are an ongoing part of intervention, to ensure we're on track in getting you to your goals.
STEP 4: Post-Assessment/Termination/Graduation
The whole point of therapy is to not need therapy. My goal is for you, your child, and your family to get to a point where you meet all of your treatment goals, have the knowledge, tools, strategies, and coping skills you need so that therapy is no longer necessary. Most often, termination discussions begin a couple of sessions prior to our final session to review goals and progress, and address any outstanding concerns, and ends with a graduation session. Of course, children and families with the absolute best outcomes are those who complete their treatment plan in full, but termination can happen at any time any of us feel it's no longer helpful or necessary.
