Individual sessions offer you the flexibility to take as little or as many sessions as you like. You may present any topic(s) you feel needs to be addressed, or you may leave this task to the counselor. Sessions are based on one (1) hour increments.
Typical sessions usually begins with meeting with the counselor to discuss the problem(s) that led you to counseling, what you want to get out of counseling (your goals), and a plan that may be taken to achieve your goals. Sessions that follow will all support achieving your counseling goals and minimization of the problem(s).
Most couples wait too long to seek help for their relationship. When they do it's too late.
Don't be the couple who waits.
