What are your hours?

At this time, hours are by appointment only 

How long is therapy?

The frequency of treatment is based on your presenting concerns. The duration of therapy looks different for everyone. On average, sessions are 45 minutes long but range up to 75 minutes. 

There is no time limit on therapy. Treatment can be short term and long term.

What happens during the first session?

During the first session we review your consent for treatment. I also gather detailed information about you to determine the type of treatment that is needed and if I am the best fit for you. If we decide that I am not a good fit for you I will provide you with referrals. 

What can I expect in my sessions with you?

Dr. Mauro's therapy sessions typically include:

-structured sessions 

-"homework" assignments

-team effort (you and I collaborate)

-directive approach 

-some sessions may include worksheets

-educational sessions 

-goal oriented approach 

-short-term therapy

-evidenced based practice

-focus on thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and relationships 

If you like this approach than we should be a good fit for each other. However, the initial session will help you determine your comfort and readiness for treatment 

What is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist prescribes medication while a psychologist provides therapy 

How do I know if you're the right therapist for me?

A first step in making this decision is to meet face to face. During our contact you should considerr the following things:

1. Can I see myself feeling safe and comfortable with the therapist?

2. does the therapist have experience in the field?

What is evidenced based practice

Evidenced based practice requires training and certification. 

According to the American Psychological Association, evidenced based practice is defined as an integration of the best available research with clinical expertise. 

Evidenced based treatment provides you with best recovery.
