How does it work?

Step 1.

Reach out to set up a 15-min free phone consultation where I will hear about some of your concerns and answer any questions you may have about therapy. If we both feel that we are a good fit, we can then schedule an initial therapy appointment.

Step 2.

Before the start of the first session, some basic paperwork needs to be filled out.  I will send you the telehealth video link and information you need to log in to our secure HIPPA-compliant portal.  You will need a good internet connection and a safe and confidential place for therapy.

During our first appointment, I would go over some important clinic policies including confidentiality, payments, etc.  I will answer any administrative questions. I will then start to get to know you and your concerns better, including some of your goals and expectations. Depending on your needs and time, I may also give you some tools to help manage some of your symptoms.  

Depending on your needs and goals, I will work with you to determine an individual treatment plan. Many of my clients feel better after 10 -15 sessions and I frequently check in with my clients on the therapy progress.

Currently I’m only seeing clients via Telehealth.

Please contact me to cancel or reschedule our appointment at a minimum of 24 hours before the start of our appointment.
