Not all clients need a full assessment. For patients who require a consultation or a second opinion, CBT Baltimore readily provides consultations (which are more brief than our assessments) when appropriate.
Individuals may be new to therapy and want to discuss something that is bothering them to test out therapy before completing a thorough assessment. Some have a specific situation they want to discuss with an expert but do need ongoing treatment.
In some situations, loved ones are coming in to work on getting the individual into treatment. Consultations are often the precursor to actual treatment.
Schools and other organizations will often seek the perspective of one of our experts for a particular challenge they are facing.
