It can be uncomfortable to share with someone you don't know.
Attending an introductory consultation before starting therapy can make the entire process feel better.
The purpose of the consultation is to:
- Find out what it might be like to work with me.
- See if you're comfortable talking with me.
- Decide if you'd be comfortable sharing with me.
- Find out if I have worked with issues like yours before.
Attending a consultation means that you will likely feel less nervous and apprehensive when you actually start therapy, and feeling more comfortable can lead a better overall experience.
What happens during an introductory consultation?
It is a free, 30-minute, in-office or video meeting in which we are able to meet face-to-face, talk about the process of therapy, discuss your general goals, explore payment/insurance options, and address any questions you may have about the therapy process.
At the end of the consultation, you will be supplied some materials to look over. You are encouraged to read through them and take some time to think about how you felt during the consultation. If you decide you'd like to work with me, you can book an appointment online or with me directly via phone or email. And best of all, we will already be acquainted at our first session.
