To schedule a first appointment, call Mindful Therapy Group at (425) 640-7009.
During our first meeting, we’ll explore your goals for counseling, discuss possible treatment approaches, and I’ll make an initial diagnosis.
Insurance companies require a diagnosis, so this is an essential part of our first session — at least if insurance is paying for services. I don’t believe its possible to make a thorough, thoughtful diagnosis in just one session, so my initial diagnosis is always provisional and conservative.
If counseling seems appropriate and we agree I’m a good fit for your goals and needs, at the end of this first meeting I’ll probably suggest ongoing appointments. I believe therapy is most effective when sessions occur on a predictable basis. With that in mind, I typically recommend weekly appointments at a regularly scheduled time, at least for the first few months.
FREE PHONE CONSULTATION
Would you like to chat before scheduling an initial session? I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation. This gives you an opportunity to ask specific questions you may have and see if we’d be a good therapeutic fit. The consult can include the parent, teen, or both.
