You may want to know how long your therapy session will last?
The first appointment that each patient has is an initial, diagnostic and intake evaluation.
The chief goal is to collect as much information about the patient as possible including the collection of clinical information in order that Dr. Albin may make an informed and preliminary diagnosis in order to make the best clinical decisions about each individual patient. During this initial session you are encouraged to ask Dr. Albin any questions about your treatment.
After an intake evaluation is completed, sessions are 45 minutes long. This includes individuals, couples and family therapy sessions.
As Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is goal oriented in its treatment objectives, there may be homework assignment which will be reviewed at the time of your appointment.
