FAQ

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING
What can I expect?  
During the initial session we explore the issue(s) that has brought you to counseling. We set goals based on what you see the challenges to be and how you envision change towards healthy living in your life. We engage in talk therapy and possible complementary and/or alternative techniques within your comfort level and ability.

How long is a session?
Sessions are approximately one hour in length.

What are alternative/complementary strategies that may be used?
 
Talk therapy is the traditional therapy used in counseling.  It involves exploring issues and solutions through discussion between the therapist and client.  Complementary/ alternative techniques include visualization, meditation practices, changes in dietary practices and techniques that involve unblocking personal and physical energy. Any of these practices may be used to the comfort, willingness and ability of the client.
