Where We Start

Starting therapy doesn’t have to be a confusing journey. You should know what you can expect when you begin, and how the process unfolds. Everyone’s journey is unique, but there are some points to lay out that can make yours less imposing.

We start off with a brief phone call (usually about fifteen minutes), in which we get to know each other a little. I’ll ask you about what’s bringing you into therapy, and what you’re looking to address. You’ll probably have some questions for me as well; this phone call is a great time to ask them. If we both decide that it makes sense to work together, I’ll take down some basic information, and we’ll schedule an appointment. Following the phone call, I’ll send you a short form outlining my office policies and allowing you to consent to working with me.

Your first session will be between forty five minutes and an hour. In that session, we’ll go more into detail about who you are, what you’re dealing with, and what’s brought you to where you are in life. At the end of that session, we’ll have an idea of how to approach you in the situation you’re in.

I am currently offering both in-person and online sessions to clients living in the state of New York.

Any more questions? Give me a call! I’m happy to answer them.
