What can I expect in your office?
During your initial visit, in a confidential and private setting, I will ask you a number of routine but important questions.
These will include what is prompting you to seek therapy, as well as questions about your life in general.
The session involves a survey of your life experiences, not only as an adult, but also as an adolescent and as a child.
Based upon your specific situation and circumstances, other questions will be asked to help with gaining a better understanding of what has been going on for you.
I will also explore with you aspects of daily living that are essential to well-being and relationships. These will include things like your your mood, how you feel you are doing in daily functioning, as well as appetite. Your habits regarding sleep, exercise, and nutrition will be explored, as well as the vitality of your sex life.
Unless arranged otherwise beforehand, please plan on 50 minutes for the initial session.
If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them. I welcome your email. Or if you prefer, call (425) 247-1880.
