Getting Started

Step 1: Contact Us & Schedule your Visit

There are several ways you can reach out to us; choose the method that feels most comfortable to you. Rest assured your privacy is extremely important to us.   We offer two initial options for new clients:

Option 1:  15 minute "Meet and Greet"  We want to offer you time to "interview" us and see if it makes sense for us to work together.  We believe that is best done in person as chemistry and non verbal communication can play a big part in connections.  Please note:  This is not a covered benefit if you are using your health insurance.  Fee:  $30

Option 2:  45 minute "Dive RIght In" session.  This is conducted like a more typical Intake appointment and includes a psychological interview.  This is a covered service is you are using your health insurance benefits.


Step 2: Prepare for your visit

There are several forms that you can fill out here on our website, or print/fill to bring with you to help us get you started right away. A little preparation now can save you time when you visit us and allow you to fill the paperwork at your convenience in the comfort of your own home.

What to Expect

  1. From your first visit,  we will strive hard to make you feel comfortable as we begin to explore your emotional health.  We ask people to give it several sessions to decide if this is a good fit and if counseling is right for them.
  2. After several sessions, we will work together to determine your goals and the path we will take to achieve those goals.
  3. Always remember, counseling is not just for people with "problems".    A therapeutic relationship can prove vital in giving you the necessary time for reflection, self discovery and having a place to sort through the various feelings and thoughts that we all need to process.
