The assessment phase of couples therapy is not a typical 50-minute intake session but rather consists of 4 different parts and takes approximately 4-5 hours:
- Initial Interview with the Couple – 90 minutes
- Interview with each Individual Partner – 55 minutes each
- Assessment package – includes online access to the Relationship Check-up Questionnaire
- Assessment Feedback and Treatment Planning – 90 minutes
During the Initial interview, I will meet with the couple to review policies and procedures and answer any questions you may have about what the rest of the day will look like.
After this, I will be meeting with each partner individually to collect additional information. During this time the other partner will be provided with a packet of assessments to complete in the lobby or outside in the breezeway.
