"I’m overwhelmed by repeated and upsetting experiences."
Therapy begins with an evaluation of your needs. From this initial evaluation, I will be able to offer some impressions of what our work together would include. That said, it is important that we come to a joint understanding about the problems we can work on in therapy.
"I’m ready to feel better"
To better ensure we are working well together, and that you are benefiting from all of your efforts, I consider the evaluation of your progress and therapy outcomes as we go important. Although change cannot be guaranteed; change may occur in ways you expect and in ways that surprise you. We can use specific outcome measures to better evaluate this change as it occurs.
