FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We see individuals, couples, families, and groups. We work with clients with a wide array of concerns and problem areas.
There is no set number of sessions required. The number of sessions depends on the need of the clients related to their concern or issue. Typically, you may give yourself at least four (4) consecutive sessions to observe significant change.
There is no definitive answer to this question. Though it’s safe to say more than a session or two is necessary to make any headway on what brings someone in, some individuals find a few sessions are sufficient, while others choose to continue long-term (over 20 sessions).

For couple’s counseling, we usually recommend that each of you get an individual session first before going on a couple’s session. We do the individual session first to prepare the couple individually and to see their individual perspective of the situation. However, if you and your partner are both ready and open to a couple’s counseling session then we can go straight to that.
