Individual counseling is a great opportunity to establish and achieve personal goals, no matter how big or small.
During our first session or two, we will complete a full assessment to determine any diagnoses, symptoms, and impact on functioning. We will also envision your life without these issues and identify what is currently in the way of you making this vision a reality.
I occasionally assign some homework, because — and I can't stress this enough — when you practice these skills in your daily environment, you will have more success with maintaining meeting treatment goals. This will ultimately build upon your progress, so you can see results sooner and generalize those results to all areas of your life.
For kids and teens, a parent or caregiver is expected to be involved in at least the first session and periodically throughout treatment at agreed-upon times. Confidentiality still applies and is imperative to your child feeling comfortable in therapy. Limits/exceptions to this are outlined in the Privacy Practices agreement and will be discussed during the first appointment.
Are you tired of telling your child the same thing over and over? (And are they tired of hearing it?)
Do you feel you have “tried everything” to help your child through dealing with difficult emotions and you don't know what else to do?
