What can I expect from therapy?
First and foremost, you can expect that your sessions, in partnership with me, will be confidential. There are legal and ethical expectations that I will uphold and I will not reveal any information without your written permission. However, certain exceptions do exist such as the need to report child abuse, potentially suicidal behavior, and homicidal behavior to the proper authorities.
You have a vital role in making your therapy work. Through commitment to your therapy and active participation in your sessions you will get the most from your therapy and make steady progress toward your goals. From time to time I may ask you to work on assignments between sessions as a means of enhancing yourself, your relationships, or your family. Although the assignments are voluntary, I strongly encourage you to do your best. We will establish a routine time to meet that can accommodate both your schedule and mine. If you are unable to keep your appointment please call me at least 24 hours in advance, otherwise you may be charged for missed appointments. I realize emergencies come up and I will certainly take those into consideration. You may contact me, at the office, 571-0170 ext. 119, or my cell
