Services

Diagnostic Intake

Mental health treatment typically begins with a diagnostic intake. This is a process in which a licensed psychologist or other trained mental health professional conducts an interview with the client in order to obtain relevant historical and background information. The therapist may also spend some time orienting the client to therapy, reviewing the informed consent form(s), and outline policies and procedures. The diagnostic intake may yield a diagnosis and the therapist may make appropriate clinical recommendations and referrals. 

Intakes last about 60-minutes in length.

Individual Psychotherapy

Individual psychotherapy (also known as counseling, talk-therapy, or treatment) is a process in which clients work 1-on-1 with a licensed psychologist or other trained mental health professional in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. 

Sessions last about 50-minutes in length.

Teletherapy

Teletherapy (also known as telepsychology, telehealth, or telemedicine) refers to psychological treatment delivered via technology such as video conferencing. Teletherapy allows individuals to conveniently receive mental health treatment in the comfort of their homes.
