What to Expect
When you visit Welcoming Wellness Counseling, you can expect a warm, compassionate, and nonjudgmental environment. Every therapy session will be developed around the unique qualities and learning styles of the client and all sessions will be tailored to the client’s specific goals. Depending on the needs of the client, therapy may include therapeutic conversation, exercises and role-play of real-life scenarios, education, hands-on activities, and other techniques that may be useful. There may be times when you are asked to extend what you are working on in therapy to your everyday life. This may include keeping journal entries to track certain emotions and/or behaviors, reading a relevant book, or practicing techniques with a trusted confidant. For therapy to be most successful, it is important to work collaboratively and intently.
At the first session, Kyle will ask that you fill out some paperwork and explain to you, your rights as a client. It is important that you know your rights as a client and that you can terminate therapy at anytime. It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, where each session lasts 45-60 minutes for individual, and 75-90 minutes for couples. Sometimes a client who may be going through a particularly difficult challenge may request more time for their session. Kyle is willing to be flexible and work with each client on an individual basis to meet their therapeutic needs.
If you would like to fill out your paperwork prior to your first session, please download the following documents. You may email them to me prior or bring them to your first session.
