+ How many sessions are typical?

Each client and family arrive with their own unique goals and challenges. Typically progress is best achieved thru 6-8 sessions that occur weekly or biweekly. After that, it is commonplace for clients to maintain “maintenance” sessions per month or every other month to ensure ongoing progress is achieved for 3-6 months. Clients maintains the right to discontinue treatment at any point as well.
