What to Expect

The first thing you can expect is for me to return your call quickly – usually within 24 hours of your first contact to me – even on weekends! If I am away from my office the call will automatically reflect on your phone as blocked/private/restricted.

I will make sure that we have ample time to talk about your situation and your reasons for seeking counseling. You will have a chance to ask me any questions you may have. This is where we begin to build a therapeutic relationship and see if it may be a “good fit.”

At this time we would book your first appointment as our schedules permit – sometimes even the same day. I would give you basic information about how to prepare for the fist visit, and your treatment has begun!
