What to Expect

- After scheduling your first appointment, you will be directed to download some initial paperwork to complete, sign, and bring to your first appointment.

- Appointments are held in a professional, comfortable office setting.   During sessions, Marian is not seated behind a desk, but is seated nearby to aid conversation.

- At the appointment, Marian will introduce herself, and answer any additional questions you may have regarding the office, paperwork, and treatment.

- You will have an opportunity to share your concerns and your reason for seeking treatment.

- If it appears that treatment would be beneficial, regular appointments will be scheduled.

- After a few sessions, a Treatment Plan will be completed together that identifies  primary goals for treatment.   This Plan  will help to guide treatment, as well as identify when treatment is nearing its close.
