Anxiety / Depression / Addiction

In the first sessions, we complete the paperwork, discuss confidentiality, and gather information using a biopsychosocial assessment. The focus of the second session is to gather additional information and identify barriers, goals and objectives. 

A goal with out a plan is just a wish

The third and fourth sessions are typically a time to write down what the focus of therapy will be. This is often called a “Treatment Plan.” The treatment plan will outline what your goals are and what specific objectives you will realize, for example:

Barrier: Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, ADD, ODD, OCD, DMDD
Goal: Assert my ideas verbally, 3 out 5 opportunities every week for a month.
Objective: When I have an opportunity to verbally assert my ideas at work, I will verbally express my idea while using cognitive defusion strategies to cope with the anxiety.

Treatment Plan

"When you fail to plan you plan to fail"
The Treatment Plan outlines your specific goals, how we will measure them, and what will happen to help you reach them. Also, it will outline environmental factors that need to be adjusted. The following sessions will focus upon meeting your Treatment Goals.
We will discuss the progress and decide if we need to add goals, change them, or if you want to be done with therapy. Our goal is to help you decide when you can walk with out the crutches, so you can move on with your life.
