Our process begins with a telephone call.
Effective therapy is based on a trusting relationship. Many studies confirm that the most important factor in successful therapy is the fit between client and therapist. That is why it often works best for us to have an initial preliminary conversation. I would like to hear about you and the issues that concern you. As we talk for 15 to 20 minutes, you will also have a chance to ask questions about how I work, fees, or anything else you are curious about. From there, if you are comfortable doing so, we may go on to make an initial appointment.
Our telephone conversation and first appointment will give you a sense of what it might be like to work with me, and give you an indication of whether I might be a good therapeutic fit for you.
An initial consultation is complimentary. My hourly fee is $150. I do not take insurance.
