What to Expect

If this is your first experience with counseling, it is normal to feel anxious about disclosing highly personal information to a stranger. So as we begin, my goal will be to create a calm, welcoming, and comfortable space for you. It should feel like you are meeting with someone who is deeply interested in your personal story and who wants to earn your trust.

During our first session at my office in Franklin, TN (near Brentwood and Cool Springs) we will take time to get acquainted as I gather background information in order to understand more about what brings you to therapy. Then together we will agree on a treatment plan to fit your specific needs and goals. A typical session lasts about 55 minutes.

There really is no “norm” for how long the therapy process should take. Because it is a process, it will depend upon your own unique situation. The length of time it may take to achieve your goals will vary, so we will continue to talk about them as we go along. If at any time you have questions about therapy or your treatment goals I will always be happy to stop and answer them.
