Payment is due at the time of the session. I accept credit card payment through my secure online system, Simple Practice. Client will be able to place credit card information through a safe and secure client portal. Stripe auto pay will deduct my fee from your card, including credit card convenience fee, after every session completed. No worries, no hassle.
What You Can Expect At Your First Session
The first therapy appointment can be nerve wracking, but I assure you, that is normal. Once we have met over the phone during your free 15 min phone consultation, I will send you a link to your private client portal. You will have an intake evaluation and consent forms to complete online prior to your first appointment. This will let me know what brought you to therapy, some of your personal history, and what you hope to get out of therapy.
You deserve to be listened to, heard, and respected without judgment as you embark upon your healing. I consider it an honor and a privilege to accompany you on this journey. That is why I like to get all the paperwork out of the way, so for our first full session we can jump right in. Our initial session will feel like a conversation where I am getting to know you, your needs, concerns, and learning about your strengths and interests: i.e., who you are as a person. We will create a treatment plan together that focuses on your goals and review some of the interventions and tools that will be tailored to your needs. Your treatment take place once or twice a week, depending on the need.
Duration of Session
Session times range from 55-90 minutes, depending on our work and treatment. I am available for appointments on some evenings. Right before our first session I’ll send over my introductory paperwork online. That way we can jump right in when we meet during our first session. I do accept some clients if I have room in my practice on a need basis for sliding scale fees and when donations are available to those who qualify.
