What to Expect
Preparing you for your first visit to our offices in Brookside
A Balanced Life LLC is located in a quiet neighborhood in the Brookside area. The 1950s-style building provides parking and there are several steps up to the suite’s entrance. Natural light bathes the ample lobby. You will feel at ease amid warm, welcoming decor upon your first visit.
Before your first visit, we will have already spoken over the phone about your needs and scheduled your first appointment. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; however, other appointment times may be accommodated. During your first visit, we will complete a thorough assessment, and you will have a chance to ask any questions you have about our services, policies, consents, and other forms before signing them in the office. (Please see the forms page for more information.)
Following the initial assessment, we will provide recommendations and, if needed, referrals and resources. Once therapy starts, we will develop a treatment plan that identifies your goals for therapy, how you will achieve your goals, the treatment interventions that will be used, and how often and for how long we will plan to meet. The treatment approaches recommended for your specific conditions will be explained to you and mutually agreed upon. Ending therapy is a planned, shared undertaking, as we want you to feel confident about your therapy progress and achievements.
