The initial visit is include the completion of a psychosocial assessment. This assessment gives me a scope of who you are through identifying information, your presenting problem, and a history about your past and present. This way I am able to assess and learn more about you and what's going on in your life. You also have the opportunity to learn about me and ask questions.
The most insightful thing that I have learned as a mental health professional is that you have to meet clients where they are and allow them to be themselves. I also have learned that you can not force things and allow them to naturally occur as the healing process takes place. Silence during a session is also common, as it allow the client time process their feelings or gather their thoughts. Counseling is therapeutic and should be taken as such.
My therapy style is cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more positive and effective way.
