After an initial intake session of 60 minutes to assess issues and history, We typically meet with individual clients for 50-minute sessions on a weekly basis. As coping increases and positive changes are apparent, sessions can move to a bi-weekly or even monthly basis for continued progress and support.
We conduct intake sessions with couples both together and individually to fully assess issues within a relationship. Following intake (70 minutes), weekly 60-minute sessions allow adequate time for both partners to be heard, issues explored, and new communication skills practiced. Individual sessions are also often helpful. As partners experience improvement in the relationship, sessions shift to bi-weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly schedules to provide continued support.
