About Therapy at NFSB

A Partnership

We view therapy as a partnership between you and your therapist. The therapeutic relationship is best provided in an environment of trust. You can expect your therapist to be open and engaged about the progress of your therapy. Your therapist will also expect you to be open and engaged with them about your expectations and goals and other matters relevant to your treatment.

Theoretical Orientations

At NFSB, our clinicians have a variety of theoretical orientations. All our therapists are able to work with you on short and long-term goals, depending on your treatment needs. Your therapist would be happy to talk with you about their theoretical orientation as well as discuss alternative modalities and options that could be provided elsewhere or in addition to the work, we do at NFSB. All clinicians have the benefit of working in a collegial environment with access to different resources from which they can draw to be helpful to you.

Colleagues and Confidentiality

Therapists benefit (and clients benefit by extension) from consulting with colleagues. To provide the best treatment for our clients, peer supervision and consultation are an important part of our organizational model. Only information necessary to aid in the support of a client’s treatment is shared, and all information is handled confidentially among clinicians engaged in the consultation process.
