What to Expect
FAMILY HELP FOR CHALLENGING TIMES
Marriages, teens, and children facing today’s challenges need support. Conflict in marital attachment and communication can too quickly slide into thoughts of divorce, teenagers beset with social stress coupled with performance anxiety feel alone, and children who act out need empathic understanding along with respectful redirection. Family Help Counseling and Seminars exists to guide families into respect, stability, and joy. It is my honor to come alongside you and your loved ones in this process.
What to expect at your first appointment:
Paperwork will be reviewed, including client rights, responsibilities, and confidentiality policies. New Client registration forms and Adult and Adolescent/Child Intake information forms are available on this website. You may print and fill them out and bring to your first session. Alternatively, you can arrive 20 minutes early at our office and fill out paperwork in the lobby.
Goals for therapy will be addressed. Individual hopes and dreams, along with any marital and family hopes and dreams can be discussed and charted. This will be an ongoing process throughout the course of therapy.
Your first small, practical steps to move toward these hopes and dreams in everyday life will be explored. Actual or perceive stumbling blocks that may inhibit these small steps of growth will be discussed. Exploring ways to overcome these stumbling blocks to growth will also be an ongoing process in the course of therapy.
Educational resources and/or seminars may be suggested for additional help and insight. Articles and handouts are available free of charge on a variety of family and mental health issues.
A mutually agreed upon treatment plan will be discussed, written and signed. Recommended frequency of appointments will be part of this treatment plan. Treatment plans will be regularly reviewed and adjusted as necessary. Clients may then schedule their next appointment.
