In your first session, which is called an “intake”, you will be asked basic, informational questions and work with the counselor to establish goals for counseling.
What happens during the course of your counseling experience may differ over time, based on your situation, progress, or changes in your life. Your counselor will at times incorporate journaling, role-playing, talking with relevant individuals, reading assignments, relaxation strategies or “homework.” This will depend on your needs and goals.
In couples counseling you will have opportunities to work with your partner on issues that may be impacting your relationship. You may focus on communication skills, conflict resolution, or making decisions about your future together. I will help you work together to focus on and achieve specific goals for your relationship.
