Are You Ready For Treatment?

Deciding to receive treatment is a big and brave decision. Perhaps you or your child have been living with symptoms far too long and are now ready to do something about it! All of the treatments I provide are a big commitment for both you and/or your family. In addition to our weekly sessions, there is daily practice expected from the patient in order to see the intended results. 

Ask yourself the following:

  1. Do I or my child have a minimum of 45 minutes per day to devote to at-home practice of skills?

  2. Do I or my child understand that, at times, treatment may take priority over other activities?

  3. Do I or my child have the physical and emotional energy to devote to treatment?

  4. Are my symptoms one of the biggest problems in my life right now? If there are other big changes/situations occurring (ie: a move, divorce, substance abuse) it is often best to wait until those other life situations are resolved before pursuing treatment. 

  5. Am I motivated for my change? For parents : Am I able to assist in increasing the motivation for change in my child?

  6. For parents: Do I have the time for my child's treatment and willingness to be involved? Treatment for children and teens  require involvement from the parent(s). Treatment is typically NOT a solo endeavor between therapist/child. 

If you answered yes to the majority of questions above, you or your child are ready for treatment and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
