Initial Conversation

These days, the most convenient way for us to begin is by you sending me an email. Please include your name, number, who referred you, and what issues you would like to work on. If you want therapy with your partner, please include that person’s email contact so I can reply to both of you.

When I get back to you— usually within 24 hours unless you have specified another time — you will have a free Zoom meeting with me which will last roughly 10 – 15 minutes.

No assessment or clinical services will be done on this chat. This is just an opportunity for us both to figure out if we should set up an initial appointment. We will talk about the issues you are seeking help with, you can ask me questions about my approach, and we will determine whether we might work well together. If you like, we may decide to do a free initial consultation meeting before committing to a first session. 

Scheduling the First Session

If our Zoom conversation indicates that I feel I can be helpful to you, and you also feel comfortable meeting with me, we may also schedule a first session which will be in-person, in my office on Monday – Friday, unless you opt for a premium weekend slot. This session will provide us both with more information about whether we want to schedule future sessions. If, after this meeting, you or I feel we cannot work together, I will help you to connect with another therapist who works well with your issues.

Forms

After we have set up our initial session, you will be emailed a PDF of forms or you may be sent a link to my forms via Simple Practice.

Fees

Of course you would like to know how much your psychotherapy will cost. You can find out more on my fees page.
