There are no guarantees with psychotherapy or psychiatry. We work in this field because we have seen people achieve tremendous gains form this kind of work. That doesn’t mean that we can guarantee that every person will be helped, but if what you need is something that we can help with then we will use the best available treatments to do our utmost to help. The length of session depends on the situation. A regular Psychotherapy session will last 50 minutes. For an initial assessment with a Psychiatrist of Psychologist this could last 90 minutes.
Dr. Wei Wang and her amazing staff invites you into our private office with a comfortable, safe environment.
Attending Your First Consultation
The only person who can tell your story is you. So when you enter our office for the first time, you should remind yourself that you are your own life expert. We are not here to judge you. In fact, our main job is simply to listen to you and become the world’s second-foremost expert on you (you being the first). So feel confident that we don’t know you as you know you in that first session, and tell your story — what brings you in today?
Frequently Asked Questions
At the end of your first appointment, Dr. Wang will often arrive at a tentative diagnosis for your problem. Diagnoses can often help guide you as a patient in helping you formulate a realistic treatment plan, and inform whether medication may be helpful or necessary.
There are times when a final diagnosis after just one session is not made, in which there may be an update or change to your diagnosis after attending additional sessions in getting to know you.
If medication is necessary, Dr. Wang will discuss options, benefits, side effects, contradictions, and risks.
