How do I begin the therapy process?
First of all, welcome! The idea of beginning your therapeutic journey can be both exciting and slightly terrifying, as is any big step in life. Sometimes coming to therapy is your idea, and sometimes it’s at the prompting of a loved one, but it is always the start of a journey of self-discovery and growth. I would love to speak with you on the phone for a few minutes to see if we are a good fit, as the most important part of any therapeutic journey is the match between therapist and client. If I believe that one of my colleagues is more specialized in an area that you are seeking support for, I am happy to give you some referral names. If it feels like you and I might work well together, we will set up an appointment time. I will then email you my informed consent and intake forms, and you can fill them out and bring them to our first session. That way we won’t take up time during our first session with paperwork. I look forward to hearing from you as you step into this brave adventure of self-discovery and self-acceptance.
