Individual Therapy

A typical Individual Therapy Session involves only you and Dr. Porter. The first meeting will usually focus on background and a thorough history of the problem. This initial session will allow the doctor to further examine the source of the problem and levels of treatment available. These sessions adhere strictly to our privacy and confidentiality guidelines.

Although at times, you may feel as though someone you know or care about should join you in your therapy sessions. This is acceptable as long as it is determined appropriate for treatment and discussed ahead of time. It is also understandable that you may want close friends or family to be informed about your treatment. Fill out and sign an authorization for release of information and your therapist can inform whomever you would like about any aspect of treatment that you would like him or her to know. .
