Getting Started

Many people feel unsure about seeking psychological services and have general questions about therapy and whether it is right for them. Before we meet, I schedule a time for both of us to speak briefly on the phone not only to address these issues but also to get a better sense of what your needs are and if I can be helpful. Please contact me about scheduling a free consultation by phone.

The Initial Consultation

I consider our first one to three sessions an initial consultation for both of us. I would encourage you to view this time as “no strings attached,” an opportunity to learn more about me and my practice. By the end of the evaluation, I will be able to offer you a first impression of what our work will involve if you choose to continue therapy. Because therapy involves a significant commitment of time, money, and energy, it is important to take your time to select a therapist who is right for you. If we determine I am a good fit for you, we will schedule a follow-up appointment. If, however, we determine I am not the right fit for you, for whatever reason, I am always happy to provide referrals to other providers in the community.

Please download and complete the Initial Consultation Packet and bring this with you to our first consultation session.
