Getting Started

Seeking help can be daunting or overwhelming, but it can also be the best thing you can do for your well-being.

Finding Help

It can be hard to find the right therapist fit for your family. It is important to be an educated consumer and to look for three main criteria in a therapist:

  1. A therapist who can build a positive relationship with you, your child, or adolescent.
  2. A therapist who practices research-based, effective treatment strategies such as behavioral therapy or cognitive-behavioral therapy
  3. A therapist who has experience treating your specific age group or issue (e.g., children, couples, adolescents, etc.).

Don’t be afraid to call and “interview” a therapist to determine goodness-of-fit for your family.


Next Steps

When you call to schedule an appointment, we will get a brief overview of your concerns. Based on
these concerns, we will match you/your child with a therapist who could best help. Additionally, we will obtain some demographic and insurance information. This phone call will take approximately 10 minutes.

The first appointment will be a “diagnostic intake,” and consists of obtaining information about concerns, history/background, strengths and weaknesses, etc. Based on these indicators, our therapists will work together with individuals, parents, and couples to develop an action plan to help your family thrive.

You will be asked to bring some initial paperwork from our website to the first appointment. All paperwork can be discussed with your therapist.

Child Psychotherapy

After the first session, an appointment will likely be made with your child and the therapist. The main goal of the first sessions are to develop a positive relationship with your child, since much of a child’s motivation for and outcomes from therapy are based on the relationship with the therapist. These sessions truly set the stage for the success of the intervention!

Many treatments last approximately 20 sessions and necessitate weekly sessions, but this differs for each child and presenting concern. Your therapist should be able to give you a good idea of treatment progress and timeline after a few sessions with your child. Additionally, most treatments are active and involve a component of “work” outside of the therapy session, so “homework” or “projects” may be assigned to encourage use of learned skills during the week.
