During the initial interview, your therapist will ask you a wide range of questions about your current problems, medical history, family history, and other related information. The most important factor determining the success of psychological treatment is the relationship between you and your therapist. A successful therapy experience depends on your openness and honesty, as well as your therapist’s ability to provide the support, skills, and guidance necessary to facilitate the changes you desire. We see the therapy relationship as a collaborative one. This means that we work together on developing and determining the goals and methods of assessment and treatment. The collaborative development of a treatment plan helps provide a blueprint for guiding the therapy process toward accomplishing your desired goals and outcomes.
