How long does therapy last?

Well now, there are a couple different ways to answer this question — session length and treatment length. My standard therapy session is 50 minutes long. First appointments in couples and family therapy are double sessions or 100 minutes long to allow us to adequately address each person's needs in those contexts. Group session length is typically 90 minutes. As to how long the course of your therapy may last, that is really individualized for each client depending upon the needs and issues to be addressed, your strengths and resources available to you, and your willingness to be in action between sessions. I will always work with you to provide the most effective treatment and we will decide together when it is best to end.

How do you measure the effectiveness of treatment?

I use several methods to stay in touch with how we are doing in meeting your needs and goals. First, we will have designed treatment goals together that are measurable so that we will know when we have hit those targets. Second, we will frequently be checking in with each other regarding the helpfulness of each session or series of sessions, using such methods as a scaling system (how would you rate today's session on a scale of 1 to 10? If not a 10, what do we need to do next session to make it a 10?), or by identifying your "takeaways" for that session (what you learned that you can apply to your situation). Third, we can use statistically validated measures to evaluate the effectiveness of our working relationship and your improvement in the areas of your life concerns. These outcome measures are optional and many clients find them helpful.

Do you charge for the first appointment?

Yes. We will be spending an entire session exploring your needs and concerns and identifying the best way to work together to resolve them. Depending on the treatment context (individual adult, couple, individual teen, or family) I may also be meeting with one or several other family members. In addition to the assessment process and identification of treatment goals I always do my best to offer my clients some practical takeaways which they can apply to their situation prior to the second appointment. It is my intention to deliver true value beginning with the first appointment.
