A client may come to counseling once or twice, or may choose to continue counseling until they have met their goals for life improvement. The average length of treatment for Lisa Stull’s clients is approximately 3 months or 12 sessions based on the rapid response of clients to her solution-focused approaches.
Sessions are minimally 50 minutes for individuals and 80 minutes for couples.. Extended counseling sessions may be booked for 2 or more hours on a single day, and marathon sessions are usually booked 4 to 6 hours a day for two or more days. Clients who are traveling a distance, working through a crisis or prefer a longer session format may benefit from an extended/marathon session format.
The therapeutic relationship depends a great deal on the rapport between the therapist and the client. It is important to feel comfortable with your therapist and know they are the right person to help you. Because of this key factor, therapy consultations are available for prospective clients free of charge. During this time we will briefly discuss your situation to evaluate whether or not my services meet your needs; while you can ask me questions and make sure there is going to be a good fit before investing a lot of time, energy and money. At the end of this consultation we can either make an appointment or I can refer you to services that are more appropriate for you. Consultations are offered via phone, email or in person to accommodate individual comfort levels.
Lisa Stull provides an integrative, individualized treatment approach, drawing from cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, systems, reality and existential theories. She provides brief, goal-directed treatment, working with you to identify, develop and achieve your personal goals.

Choice: YOU and your therapist are in charge of goals, length of treatment, and therapeutic choices. Savings: You pay less because we don’t spend valuable hours on insurance paperwork. Confidentiality: Insurance requires diagnosis to authorize treatment. These negative labels can follow you and be used to your disadvantage should a legal problem arise. Mis-diagnosing/Over-diagnosing: Many insurance companies will not cover treatment unless it is a “medical necessity.” Therefore, the client may be given an exaggerated diagnosis that is not in their best interest. Record: No record through your insurance company is created that will follow you. Depending on your diagnosis this record could prevent you from obtaining employment or interfere in obtaining a gun license.
