Starting Counselling or Assessment
Please bring my Intake Form (click here). During our intake appointment I will develop a relationship with you and gather information concerning your presenting problems. If appropriate, we may do a follow-up assessment to better understan any presenting problems.
I will work with you to develop a therapeutic plan designed to address your unique needs, goals, and problems/issues. Together we will prioritize which goals you would like to "target" first.
Subsequent sessions focus on your individualized goals. Appointments are between 1 - 3 weeks apart to give you opportunities to work on the skills you have learned from the previous therapy sessions.
