Individual Counseling

All video sessions are 50-minutes.

Prior to scheduling our first appointment, I offer prospective clients a 15-minute complimentary phone session to answer questions about my practice and determine if we are a good fit.

 

Once we schedule our first video session, I will ask you to complete some initial paperwork – this will include intake documents to give me a better understanding of who you are, along with specifics about my practices policies and procedures.

 

In our first video session, I will answer any questions and begin to hear your story. Think of it as a mental health check-up.  I’ll ask lots of questions to get a good sense of who you are and how I can help. I’ll offer recommendations for treatment as well. They may be with me, or in cases where others would be a better fit, I promise to share that recommendation as well. The first session is not a commitment to therapy. You can choose to proceed or not.  It is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and about the process.  

 

If we proceed together, the focus of our second session is discover your potential areas of strength and improvement. During this time, I typically write down what the focus of counseling will be. We agree on this together. This is often called a Treatment Plan.

 

The Treatment Plan outlines your specific goals, how we will measure them, and what will happen to help you reach them. The following sessions will focus upon meeting your treatment goals. We will discuss the progress and decide if we need to add goals, change them, or if you want to be done with counseling. My goal is to help you decide when you’re done with counseling, so you can get on with your life.

Clinical Supervision

All pre-licensed therapists have mandatory supervision hours they need to complete for licensure, and a crucial part of that process is having the right supervisor. Often, therapists-in-training only have access to a very limited pool of supervisors to choose from, many of whom are not always the right fit. With the rise of tele-health, most states now allow clinical supervision hours to be obtained online through live video-conference creating an easier and more efficient path toward licensure. As a dedicated mental health professional, part of my private practice concentrates on providing  affordable  clinical guidance to therapists in-training. 

 

In our 60-minute video or telephone supervision sessions, we will explore topics such as:​

  • Case review

  • Ethical issues

  • Legal issues

  • Counter-transference

  • Use of self in clinical work

  • Diagnostic skills

  • Treatment planning

  • Interventions

  • Documentation

  • Cultural competence

  • Work-related stressors

  • Career goals

  • Self-care
