Usually, the first visitation of a session will conduct as an “intake interview.” Steven will ask you necessary information about yourself and the backgrounds of your areas of concerns. He will let you to express yourself whichever you like. Steven will ask you with the follow-up questions as needed. Second visitation will focus on developing tailored treatment plan for you.
All intake forms and the insurance eligibilities on sessions will be completed prior to designing a treatment plan.
Both of sessions is when you get know about Steven’s therapy approaches that you may find helpful. There is no “right” or “wrong” answer but rather to let you to “be yourself.” Please express any way you find or feel comfortable to share. Sharing can be painful but eventually it would help to alleviate such painful feelings. Steven is looking forward to learn more about you and want to help you in your life journey.
Number of visitations (sessions) will be determined how you find therapy useful. Many insurances recommend up to 12 sessions, but not necessarily finding you beneficial in therapy. The purpose of seeking therapy is to find useful, healthy psychological approaches for you to make meaningful change(s) in your life. Making a meaningful change can be very difficult and that is why the number of sessions may be not the ultimately answer for you to work on. More you engage in therapy is better, and the efforts you make in your life journey, will show the changes.
Steven will always let you know when you make a change. Also, when you feel therapy is successful and completed, a termination session will be conducted with the understanding that you have the resources and new skills you can use to move on with your life journey. However, Steven is always here to help.
