How would you describe therapy? What is the journey like?
Some people I've worked with describe their experiences:
"Great! Exactly what I needed."
What can I expect during a Consultation Call?
We will discuss what you are looking for counseling support for, techniques and skills that I would likely use, any questions you have and next steps. Next steps may be talking with other counselors, community support referrals or setting up your intake session.
What happens during our first session?
During the first session, I will ask any follow up questions I have based on your intake form and we will begin talking about some specific treatment goals. If time allows, we will discuss coping strategies to use right away.
What if therapy isn't working?
I hope that we foster and create a safe and open environment, I am always open to and welcome feedback regarding your treatment. This can be a valuable part of the counseling process. We will do quarterly check ins about your specific goals and address anything that isn’t working.
If it doesn't seem that you are making progress, it could be that I am not the right fit counselor for you. We can discuss what isn't working and I can help support you in finding a better fit counselor.
My highest goal is your healing and progress, so I want you to be in the best place for you!
What is your cancellation policy?
If you cancel an appointment with less than 2 business day notice or no-call-no-show, you will be charged your appointment fee as it is unlikely will be unable to schedule another client on such short notice. This time is reserved for you.
