Our services are tailored based on your individual needs. Once the initial interview/screening is completed along with a comprehensive assessment, you will identify specific goals to work towards for the duration of your sessions. Sessions range from 30mins, 45mins, or 60mins weekly. Often, as sessions progress, or as progress is made, you may require less frequent sessions such as bi-weekly or monthly. Throughout each session, various techniques, interventions, and methods are utilized including evidenced-based materials, information, handouts, worksheets, talk, role-play, active listening, and ethical practices to address all past and presenting issues as needed and appropriate. Proper coping strategies are explored for solution-focused approaches to positive outcomes.
