    Individual Therapy

    Offering In-Person and Telehealth

    Assessment

    As with any healthcare treatment, the underlying problem must be identified first. The initial appointment will last 90-minutes and will comprise of a diagnostic interview, where we will explore the mental health challenges you are wanting to address.

    Individual Sessions

    Individual therapy appointments at Pinnacle Psychology typically are 50-minute sessions, scheduled as frequently as you and your mental health professional agree upon. A tailored treatment plan will be created shortly after your first few sessions, and you and your mental health provider will discuss the treatment interventions that are right for you.

    Short-Term Brief Therapy

    Sometimes the issues affecting mental health occur because of a specific life event, and long-term therapy is not necessarily right course of action. Pinnacle Psychology offers brief, solution focused treatment to help identify the problem, and learn the coping skills needed to cope with a stressful experience. During your first session, you and your mental health provider will determine if brief therapy is appropriate for your mental health goals.
