How Often Will I Need to See My Therapist?
Each client and care plan is different, and will be discussed with your therapist. If you would like to be seen with a specific frequency, please inform me at the time of your consultation.
What is the difference between a LCSW, a child psychologist and psychiatrist?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors whom you would see for medication and psychologists tend to do more testing than therapy. Clinical Social Workers like myself specialize in therapy. Some families only feel that they need the services of a therapist, but others see all three: a therapist weekly, a psychologist for a very thorough diagnosis, and then a psychiatrist for medication management.
How Do I Know If I Need Therapy?
Everyone comes to therapy with different reasons and goals, and I believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from seeing a professional counselor/therapist. I will address your goals in your consultation to ensure I am the best fit for your current needs.
What Can I Expect From the First Appointment?
Your first appointment will include an overview of our services and policies as well as an assessment, so that we can get to know each other. Within your first two or three appointments, we will discuss goals in therapy. This will be continuously assessed and reassessed.
