First Steps

It is important that you feel comfortable with me as your therapist.  Therefore we need to  take the time to meet each other and explore any questions and expectations you might have about psychotherapy and counseling. 

If we do decide to work together, we will set up a framework for how our work together will proceed.  If we decide not to work together after the initial meetings, I will provide you with appropriate referrals. 

If you are hesitant to schedule a first appointment, I offer a 30 minute phone consultation free of charge. It will give me a chance to start listening to your concerns, and will give me a first indication of if and how I might be of help to you.   

To schedule a first appointment or a free phone consultation, please contact me by phone at 321-2970 or you can use  the online scheduler.   I will respond to you promptly.
