WHAT TO EXPECT
I’m happy to provide a free, no obligation phone consultation with each potential client. I will do my best to understand you and the unique concerns that prompted your interest in therapy. It’s also important that your future therapist have the skills and experience necessary to treat your specific concerns. I’m open to answering any questions you may have about my training and experience. We will also discuss fees and any concerns that you may have from a financial perspective.
Finding a therapist that you really feel comfortable with can be a bit like dating. Your first session will give you a sense of what it is like to work with me. This is your chance to assess your comfort level and our ability to “click.” If it seems like we are a good match at the end of the session then we will schedule a regular time to meet. If, for whatever reason, we are not a good fit, then I will be happy to find other qualified professionals who may be better suited to help you.
The beginning of our first session will be spent reviewing forms that address issues such as confidentiality, billing, the therapy process and more. Copies of some of these forms are provided at the bottom of this page for your convenience. While it is not necessary to print and fill out all of these forms, it is helpful and makes the most of our face to face time.
