So here's how this works...
You might be fearful or nervous to reach out for counseling, but we want to assure you that it's really not as scary as it seems. You can reach us in the following ways:
The phone consultation will be a time for us to get to know each other a little bit. This is our opportunity figure out if we're a good fit for one another and for you to ask any questions you have about the therapy process.
We’ll talk about why you made the important first step to contact us, any previous experience you may have with therapy or spiritual direction, what type of service best suits your needs, as well as our rates.
Make an Appointment
If it feels right, we'll go ahead and schedule an appointment over the phone. We'll try to find a convenient time that works with your schedule and get you on track toward therapeutic change and being a better you.
Once your appointment is scheduled, we'll give you instructions for filling out the necessary paperwork. By having this paperwork done ahead of time, we’ll have more time to get to know each other and talk about the things you’re actually there to talk about in your first counseling session.
For individual counseling, couples therapy, and group therapy services, new client paperwork includes:
Informed Consent for Services
Payment Agreement & Authorization for Credit Card Use
Attend Your First Session
Don’t forget to complete your paperwork before session!
Some people have a hard time finding it for the first time. Check out our contact page for information about how to get to our office.
Once you arrive, make yourself comfortable in our waiting room, and your counselor or spiritual director will come get you when ready. Help yourself to complimentary tea, coffee, or water while you wait. Take a few deep breaths, and thank yourself for making the first step toward growth and change.
The first session is really a time for us to get to know each other and discuss your hopes and needs. We'll talk about what is happening in your life in whatever way you feel comfortable and about the direction you’d like to go. All you need to do is just be yourself.
