Exclusive Services

As with every journey, ours will have a start, middle and end. Here’s what a typical journey can look like.

Assessment

Every client relationship begins with an intake assessment. We’ll get to know one another, identify what you are coming in for and what you want out of therapy. We work together to come up with a treatment plan based around those goals. In addition to the usual areas of focus, I ask about your interests and hobbies and give you information on different types of activities that may be a good fit for you based on your treatment goals. I like to think of this stage as the starting of a quest since we lay out a map for the rest of our work together.

Ongoing Psychotherapy

You and I will meet regularly for psychotherapy, usually about once a week or so. Appointments involve experiences that have been uniquely created for you. As we go, we review and update your treatment plan to make sure we are on the right track. Along the way, side quests can include psychotherapy groups, mentorship opportunities, overnight intensives and parent coaching sessions for the adults in your life who are trying to help but may need a little support knowing how.

Conclusion of Services

Once you accomplish what you and I set out to do at the beginning of our quest together, things change. We have less frequent sessions and there may be opportunities for you to volunteer your time to support others as they start their journeys. At the end of our work together, we come up with a meaningful activity that celebrates your growth, which you can invite important people in your life to join in on. Or if you’d prefer, we can keep it simple and small instead.

Let's Work

Together

I know lots of people have questions when they start this kind of thing. Let me answer some of the common ones for you.

What kind of things can we do? Can we go surfing? How about shopping? Hiking sounds cool!

Funny, I was just about to ask you that. As part of the “get to know you” process, we’ll talk about your interests, strengths, and areas of growth. Then we’ll create a program with all this in mind based on your therapy goals. Each activity is uniquely created for you.

I’ve always wanted to rock climb, but I’m a little nervous. Are these activities safe?

I strive to make every experience as safe as possible, and live by the code of “challenge by choice." That’s why we talk about your comfort level and problem solve around potential concerns that may come up in the moment, before the moment.

What kind of things can we do? Can we go 

I get your fears, though! I get nervous when trying certain new things too.

Can I bring a friend?

Sometimes, yes. Most of our sessions will be between you and I but at times it could be helpful to involve family and friends. If that is the case, let’s talk beforehand and lay out the game plan for their involvement in your treatment.

There is no office. What does that mean exactly?

That means all appointments take place outside an office. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean outside a building. While lots of activities happen outdoors, we tend to hunker down during the rainy winter months in gaming cafes, climbing gyms, and other community spaces.

I think this is really helpful to help you build connections so you have spaces you can continue to use long after you accomplish what you’ve set out to do in therapy.

What about privacy?

Your privacy is just as serious to me as it would be if we were in an office. Naturally though, there are some limitations that come from being outside. We will discuss those at the start of any community work.
