WHAT TO EXPECT
FREE PHONE CONSULTATION
I understand that finding a therapist that you feel comfortable opening up to and one whose skills and competence you have confidence in can be a daunting task. Therefore, it is important to me to offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to prospective clients (prior to scheduling an in-person or online appointment) to discuss how working with me can benefit them.
BEFORE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Before we meet for the first time, I ask that you complete the required forms. You will be provided a link to the confidential Client Portal where you will be able to access and complete opening documents electronically.
Additionally, prior to your first appointment, you will receive a Good Faith Estimate.
YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
When we meet for the first time, in-person or on-line, we will review your opening documents, discuss your therapy goals, and clarify practical concerns such as payment, confidentiality and my cancellation policy. This first meeting will allow us the opportunity to get to know each other and determine whether we are a "good fit." Please note that all first couples appointments are 90 minutes long.
YOUR SUBSEQUENT APPOINTMENTS
If we decide to work together, we will either choose a consistent appointment day and time or we will agree to schedule your next appointment at the end of the previous one. Therapy sessions are 50-minutes and 90-minutes long and, based on your specific needs, may be scheduled weekly or biweekly. Research shows that the optimal frequency for therapy appointments is weekly or biweekly. Less frequent appointments may not be as effective.
