Laurie's Process

When you first call Laurie Grengs Counseling, plan to spend up to a half hour discussing your situation, reviewing insurance, and setting an appointment at a time that is convenient for you. Some clients schedule appointments weekly; others schedule once a month depending on the urgency of their situation. In the first appointment, the therapist learns about your needs and discusses initial recommendations to give you more specific ideas of how your healing journey will unfold.
