There are a lot of ways that as a psychologist I can help. It can be helpful to ask me for exactly what you are looking for if you know what that is. Of course, many clients do not know exactly what they want or need, and so meeting allows us to clarify that. The majority of my work is with individuals, but I also work with couples, family members and families. Starting with a consultation or even a phone call, we can quickly determine what options you might have and what would be the best way to pursue them. Sometimes, I can refer you right away to a more appropriate resource or colleague and oftentimes just a few questions can enable you to know if it makes sense for us to meet.
There are no stupid questions to ask and please feel free to ask ANYTHING that you would like. As a psychotherapist or talk therapist it is my job to be the quarterback for your treatment. If you need additional resources like to consult with a psychiatrist or to do psychological testing, meet with a nutritionist, physician or try your first AA meeting, I consider it my role to help and support you through making those connections. Therapy or counseling does not start and end with your therapist. In fact, the goal of therapy is to eventually not need a therapist anymore. In the meanwhile, I can help by coordinating your services and helping you to choose what services might be most helpful to you.
