Initial Consultation

How to get started

  • I offer all prospective clients a free 15-minute phone consultation in order to hear more about what is bringing you to seek therapy to make sure that it falls within my scope of expertise. The initial consultation is also for you to ask me any questions you may have about therapy and how I work.
  • Call or email me to schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone call to explore whether my approach is the right fit for your needs and goals.
  • If we determine that I am a good fit for your needs, we will schedule an initial appointment.
  • Before the initial appointment I will send you intake forms to get relevant background information that will help me understand your needs and strengths better, as well as other intake paperwork for you to review in advance of our meeting together.

How it works:

Sessions are scheduled weekly or bi-weekly. The initial 2-3 sessions focus on establishing a therapeutic alliance, assessment, and treatment planning. Sessions last 55 minutes.
