WHAT TO EXPECT
Every therapy session is as unique as each individual client. Initial sessions are intended to provide the therapist with a thorough description of your concern, what solutions you have tried, and what your goals for therapy and the future may be. This typically requires the duration of the initial session. Subsequent sessions focus on solving your problem and any new issues that you choose to address.
