What to Expect:

When you first contact me about therapy, I will ask a few basic questions about your presenting concerns. I will also provide you with information about my office location and current availability. If it seems appropriate for us to schedule an appointment, we will discuss fees and method of payment (cash, check, or insurance). Before coming in for therapy, you will be asked to fill out some paperwork, which can be downloaded from this website.

In order to ensure the welfare and best interests of potential therapy clients, I do a very thorough history and evaluation, which typically takes one to two 50-minute sessions. At the beginning of this intake process, we will discuss fees, the likely nature and duration of therapy, any potential risks, my abuse reporting policies, and other limits to confidentiality. You will then be invited to tell the story of why you came in. I will ask many follow-up questions, and I will do my best to answer any questions that you may have. At the end of this process, we will discuss my general observations and the various therapy options available to you. If we decide to work together in an ongoing therapy relationship, we will finish the intake by developing a clear therapy plan for how we will spend our time. We will also schedule our first therapy session.

Therapy sessions are typically 50 minutes long and scheduled once per week, but other arrangements are also possible.
