Your first session with Dr. Dorland is a little different than other counselors.
Because there are no preconceived ideas about what will be best for you, this session is to find that out.
First there’s some paperwork (for legal reasons we have to do this, that’s why we don’t offer advice over the phone). Through the paperwork, though, we will be able to discuss your individual situation and come up with a plan that works for you. Being flexible will allow us to come up with how often and how long your sessions will be. Sometimes your first session is the only session you’ll need; in other situations you may need several weekly hour sessions. On average, I see clients 5-8 times before they feel ready to move on from counseling.
Whether it’s one extreme or in between, we will work together to find the right fit.
