Frequently Asked Questions

As family therapists we are trained systemically, meaning that we believe that changes in your system (i.e. family, friends, work etc.) affect you and changes to you effect your system. The therapy we provide is brief, set in the here and now, and focused on strengths serving individuals, couples, families and groups in Fuquay-Varina and surrounding areas of North Carolina.

We strive to provide a comfortable and confidential environment in our office. We see our role as therapists as being a facilitator of change. We can offer a different perspective to assist you in making changes that work for you. Our first session consists of an assessment during which we gain a better understanding of you and your needs. Followed by a plan of action that we co-create that describes your goals and how our time together will be structured to help you achieve them. Number of sessions varies but typically falls between 4 and 15.

We are not a crisis service and are not available 24/7, if you are in immediate crisis please contact 911 or go to your local ER. If you are an existing client and NOT in immediate need of help, we can assist you with crisis resources and numbers during one of our sessions together.

Your confidentiality is of utmost concern to us and will be upheld as described in your consent for treatment. We do feel that ongoing communication with your doctor is beneficial to both your treatment with us and them. We value and recognize that the mind and body are interdependent and therefore strongly believe in collaborating with your medical provider. However, any sharing of your information is always your choice (except where required by law) and will not occur without your written permission, in the form of a release of information.

All communication between you and your therapist will remain confidential as defined in your consent for treatment. Instances where your therapist is required by law to disclose information in cases of child abuse or neglect, imminent threat of harm to self or others and elder abuse, or if we are court ordered to do so. Otherwise, information about you or your treatment can only be released by written consent.
