Therapy Process

Thank you for considering Kim Bolen McGrew, MA, LPA, LCAS for the opportunity to be your therapist. Kim manages her own schedule and will do her best to accommodate appointment time preferences. Please do not hesitate to call or email for more information or to schedule an appointment. Kim is often meeting with clients during the day, though you are welcome to leave a detailed message on her confidential voicemail, and she will do her best to return your phone call within 24 hours.

Information about policies and procedures is included in the intake paperwork forms below. You are welcome to download and complete these forms prior to your first visit, or you may arrive 20-30 minutes early for your appointment and complete them at the office. Please let Kim know in advance if you prefer to complete the paperwork at the office, and she would be happy to leave a copy with the receptionist. Kim's office is located in Landfall Executive Suites, a professional office complex with many types of businesses and practitioners, which offers anonymity and confidentiality to clients.

Your first session will be an intake assessment, which lasts approximately 60 minutes. Kim strives to provide a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where you can openly discuss your concerns. This initial session is designed to thoroughly evaluate your history, emotional and behavioral concerns, and determine treatment goals together. 

Follow-up sessions last approximately 50 minutes, with a few minutes reserved at the end of each session to schedule appointments and collect your copayment, if applicable. Kim's therapeutic approach is empathic and compassionate, while also providing direct feedback to teach problem-solving strategies and coping skills. The therapeutic relationship is collaborative and provides respect and unconditional positive regard as the foundations of treatment.
