It can be uncomfortable to be expected 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 if you might like working with me.
- See if you're comfortable sitting in my office.
- Decide if you feel like you can trust me.
- Learn 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 at an introductory consultation?
It is a free, 30-minute, in-office meeting in which we are able to meet in person, 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 given some materials to take home. 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.
