"Getting started in counseling can seem overwhelming and even scary, but together we can make the process life-changing."



The First Appointment

Getting started in counseling can seem overwhelming --even scary-- but I want to join you in this life-changing process.  So if you have questions, I'm happy to spend the time answering your concerns. Therapy involves a significant commitment of time, money, and effort, so it is important that you feel comfortable with the therapist with whom you are working.

The first session is a 90-minute intake appointment. In addition to the tasks above, we discuss matters in more detail to help us both better understand your situation and context and your goals for counseling. Then, we collaboratively decide on an initial treatment plan to structure and hopefully meet those goals.
