Feeling a little nervous about starting counseling?
Let me tell you a bit about what it will be like.
Once you call me on my confidential voicemail line and leave your contact info, I will call you back to set up our first appointment. Sessions are 50 minutes long. The first time you come for an appointment, please arrive 10-15 minutes early so you can fill out an intake form, or come ready with your forms printed and filled out. You can find them under the "Client Forms" . This is just the basic info about who you are, where you live, who is in your family, etc. The first session is mostly about "getting the lay of the land." We can talk about policies and confidentiality, and you can give me the basics of your story and what brought you into counseling. At the end of the session we'll talk about where to go next, setting up your next appointment and taking care of any other details. Payment is due at the beginning of each session. You may pay by cash, check, or card, including HSA/FSA cards. If you have a co-pay, it will be collected at this time.
