What happens on the first visit?
A visit includes a brief overview of our services and clarification of the issues you are calling about. Your therapist will ask questions to better understand your concerns and unique situation.

What does a plan of care include?
Your personalized plan of care will be solution focused, action oriented and may include goals, objectives, treatment methods and frequency of visits as recommended by your therapist. Your therapist will employ interventions and evidence-based approaches to address your particular concerns. Together, you’ll work toward meeting the goals within your plan of care.
What services are offered?
We may offer digital tools to help you address your difficulties. As necessary, we will help you navigate the mental health system in your local area, which may include education about options available through your health plan and/or a referral directly to providers or resources. Follow-up visits with your therapist will be an opportunity to explore and determine any areas of difficulty, challenges or additional directions that might work best for you.
