Before scheduling a first appointment, I would like to speak with you on the telephone for 5-10 minutes to determine if my practice is the best fit for you or your family’s needs. This initial telephone consultation is free.
The initial evaluation will be a 2-hour comprehensive assessment during which I take a complete history, and we will have a chance to collaboratively determine what steps in your treatment will come next. For children and adolescents, the parents will be an integral part of the consultation. As part of the evaluation process, I will order any necessary tests, review relevant records, and contact other treatment providers or support-people who we agree would be helpful resources.
Medication Management sessions are 25 or 50 minutes. These meetings are usually monthly, but frequency varies depending on the need.
Psychotherapy or family therapy sessions are 50 minutes.
