An initial visit is often useful in assessing the situation, arriving at some preliminary strategies for dealing with it, determining if a course of treatment is recommended and, if so, how to proceed. To make an appointment, call 425-455-0882 and leave a confidential message. Dr. Benveniste will return your call as soon as he’s available.
In an initial interview you will be invited to talk about the problem that concerns you. Dr. Benveniste will listen, explore the situation with you and then offer an initial assessment and preliminary recommendations. Those recommendations in the first session may include specific strategies for dealing with the problem, an invitation to continue the evaluation process if need be and/or possible referrals to professionals in other fields that may be useful to call on in dealing with the current problem.
If a patient chooses to continue the evaluation process he or she can expect to meet for a few more sessions after which there is likely to be a recommendation for psychodynamic psychotherapy, child therapy, counseling, couple’s counseling, or parent consultation depending upon the needs of the case and preferences of the individual.
