I Have Never Been to a Counselor Before

 What Should I Expect?

My style is warm and inviting. I want you to feel comfortable during our initial session. I would like to hear your ideas related to personal goals and potential outcomes from the counseling process. Feel free to ask any questions related to counseling. Perhaps you are hurting so deeply and it seems like no one understands or can help. I hear this all too frequently. I realize it may be difficult to admit that the services of a counselor may help you.  I can assist as you work through issues related to anxiety or depression. Please do not feel embarrassed, everyone needs some help during their life. I can help with overcoming the wounds associated with childhood physical, emotional, verbal and sexual abuse. I can help you rewrite your internal dialog, changing negativity into positive perspectives. My desire is that you be the best you can be, fulfill your potential and follow your dreams. I will listen to you and aid you in determining the best fit for you life.

I Have Never Been to a Marriage Counselor Before.

 What Should I Expect?
.
In couples counseling there is often the fear that the therapist will 'take sides' with one of the spouses. That is not how I operate. Both people in the relationship are valued and respected. I work with the two of you to help you create the relationship that you need. Prior to our first meeting I will email you and your spouse an intake form to help determine your unique goals and needs. I want to understand both of you and your unique perspective of the relationship. I often give 'between sessions' activities to participate  in with one another. This helps to speed the process and get the marriage/ relationship headed in the right direction.
I realize that when couples request the services of a marriage counselor their marriage may be in crisis. There may be anger, hurt and pain in the relationship. If this is the case the initial couple's meeting, can be reserved as a 'double session'. This double session lasts approximately 100 minutes. My goal is that by utilizing this extra time you and your spouse will experience some positive changes immediately and leave the first session with new hope.  Please call my office at 916-804-6471 for a free telephone consultation about how I may help you and your spouse or significant other.

How Long Should Counseling Take??

 HMMMMM.....

Well…….That depends. I generally see couples, teens or individuals once a week. Once good progress toward your goals has been made, we may begin on an every other week basis. Please be kind and gentle on yourself during the counseling process. Remember it some time to find yourself with the problems that you are experiencing and it will take time for you (and your spouse or significant other) to make changes in your life and relationships. Hope and healing are available with the process.
