The Process of Therapy with KMF Counseling Solutions

First of all, I am very excited about getting started and being able to work with you.  Especially, because I sincerely believe that you probably already possess within you the most appropriate and necessary internal resources that you need in order to overcome any obstacle that crosses your path.

Secondly, I believe that you are capable of achieving a lot more than you think right now.  But most importantly, I am very excited and honored to be part of your process of self-discovery.

Here is some information regarding my therapeutic services. Now while there is no specific set amount of sessions that we need to complete, on the average you can expect to at least participate in approximately 6 to 8 sessions.

The initial session will consist of a thorough intake assessment in which I will gather some background information including basic demographics, psycho-social info, medical history, mental health history, support systems, etc.

The purpose of this information is to provide me with a really good understanding of your personal background.  I will assess your strengths and internal resources as well as external resources and possible environmental factors that are preventing you from reaching personal success.

Additionally, we will also complete a couple of other administrative housekeeping items during the first session and after that initial session we will schedule the follow up sessions in which we will dive in and begin the work.
