What can I expect during an appointment?

What we do will be based on the plan developed during your initial consultation or previous appointments. Some clients want help being thoroughly prepared for upcoming medical appointments in order to maximize time and care from their medical provider. In that case, we focus on the nuts and bolts of what it takes to be prepared – then help you get there. Other times a client is overwhelmed and/or experiencing stress – in that scenario we look at ways to build coping skills and manage feelings of overwhelm. Additionally, when a doctor’s recommendations include lifestyle changes and medication compliance, we partner with our clients to help them succeed in reaching these goals. At other times a client may need help scheduling a second opinion or researching options available to them. Many people find they benefit from all of these support services. Each client has a customized plan that works for them and we adjust our services as different needs arise.
