The overall duration of therapy depends on your individual needs. This is something that will be discussed and worked on together with your therapist to determine the best course of action for you.
The Initial First Session?
The first session is scheduled for an hour. It is used to gather information regarding your current situation along with your past to gain a full understanding of you and your wants and needs for therapy.
The treatment plan is developed between you and the counselor. This plan will include the goals of therapy. My goal is to help you reach mental, physical, and spiritual health and wellness. This may include referring you to a primary care physician to rule out any medical concerns to facilitate a full wellness plan.
Is Therapy Confidential?
Your relationship and services are held in the strictest confidence according to HIPPA guidelines. Privacy practices will be provided at your initial session.
When working with minors, confidentiality continues to be an important component within the therapeutic realtionship. Therefore parents are provided with general updates as requested. If there is a safety concern, a parent will be asked to join for part of the session; and the client will be encouraged to disclose this information directly. Family involvement is an important component of adolescent counseling and safety planning.
