Just visiting this website, you’ve taken the first step in working towards the best version of yourself. Give yourself a pat on the back for wanting better for yourself, family, and/or loved one. We think it’s helpful to share with you some of what you can expect from counseling services.
What To Expect
While we are the experts in treating mental health symptoms and improving communication and intimacy in relationships, YOU are the expert of YOU. This is why we view treatment as a partnership. We use evidence-based theory and intervention (the stuff that makes for best practice) but want to incorporate what works for you as an individual. You and your counselor will spend time the first session not only talking about your symptoms, but also your strengths. Taking into account your personal preferences, talents, and interests goes a long way in making the best progress in treatment. Also, we do not judge you. It is sometimes our job to confront unhealthy or harmful behaviors or thinking, but we have an unconditional positive regard for you as an individual.
