For adults and adolescents; may be interspersed with family sessions as appropriate.
We will collaborate on who is included in family sessions ahead of time. For all youth 12 and under, caregiver presence at regular intervals is necessary to support the therapeutic process. Caregiver-only sessions and sibling-only sessions can be a helpful structure to supporting parenting skills and improving family relationships. *Please note that many but not all insurance providers cover family therapy.*
Our first appointment will cover what is bringing you or your family to therapy and the goals you have in mind. We will discuss the scope, approach, and process of my practice as well as the limits to confidentiality, especially as it pertains to minors.
