All individual sessions are 50 minutes in length. I encourage all potential clients to think about the first session as a consultation in order to explore whether or not they feel that we are a “good fit.” This enables individuals to have an honest and open discussion about what they are seeking in terms of treatment and how they feel in the first session.
My first session with a couple is 3 hours in length. Follow up sessions are typically between 1 1/2- 2 hours in length. The couple sessions are more time intensive and less frequent depending on each individual couple and their presenting issues. I don’t see individuals separately from their partner if they’re coming for couple therapy.
