Yes! I am established with a vendor that provides a confidential platform for telehealth. This can be used in case of sickness, if you live away from Duluth, if your child-care falls through, or if you just prefer to stay home!
Most sessions are just under an hour, about 50 minutes long. Extended sessions are available if your travel needs or other situation would make a longer session better. Some people prefer a longer appointment to cover more ground or to go deeper into the topics being addressed.
We offer a free 15 minute phone consultation, where we can discuss exactly what you are looking for, and then can make recommendations. During this time, we can set up an appointment if you would like.
During the first session, we will spend a few minutes completing paperwork to start. We'll then talk about what you want different for your life, and how you are hoping we can help. You will have time to share some information about yourself and what has been happening in your life. We'll be working to understand you, as a unique person with unique experiences. We'll work to make clear what we have to offer based on the troubles you're facing, and hopefully we'll have time to give you some tips on what you can do on your own to impact your desired change. The first session is often different than others, because we are working quickly to learn as much about you and your situation as we can. Later sessions tend to be more collaborative, and more focused on what can be done about your unique challenges.
If you'd like to save a few minutes of time in the initial visit, you can download and complete the intake paperwork ahead of time.
We'd be happy to answer any questions you have. Please call the office to schedule your free 15 minute phone consultation.
