What Services are Provided?

Individual services are provided for adults and adolescents.  I typically work with adolescents who are 14 or older, but in certain cases I work with younger clients.  Services are typically provided in-office, but in some circumstances we can meet on-line through a HIPAA-compliant/encrypted platform.

How Does it Work?

Services begin with an initial 45-minute meeting.  During that time we will gather information about your situation.  This can include current symptoms, family history, work/education background, and medical conditions.  From there we will outline goals and discuss strategies to help you achieve your goals.  Following the initial meeting we will typically meet once per week.  However, we might meet more or less frequently, depending on your goals.  For psychological evaluations, we will typically just meet once although this can vary as well.
