We see patients across the lifespan, from children to older adults, as well as couples.
We see many issues and specialize in the following: people who are facing difficult life choices, depression, anxiety, relationship and communication issues, marital/parenting difficulties, career dilemmas, health concerns, losses, among others.
Sessions are generally 50 minutes. However, they are catered to what is best for each patient’s needs…so they can be shorter at times. Starting out, meeting weekly is most common. On occasion, depending on need, meeting two to three sessions per week can be recommended.
Our first session will be a chance to hear about why you’re coming in for therapy and an opportunity for Jeremy to gather information about your life. In addition, it’s a chance for him to ask many questions about your life, family history, childhood, relationships, etc. in order to get to know you better. The first few sessions will be similar to the first. Then, we will move beyond and into addressing the issues for why you came for treatment.

We recommend that parents explain briefly why they feel therapeutic services are important to their children prior to their first session. Being open and honest with your child about their therapy will help them to feel more included in the process. Jeremy is happy to help guide you on how best to do this.
