What happens once I contact you?
When you contact me via the website, phone, or email, I will respond to set up a time to chat briefly by telephone.
What will we talk about on the phone call?
We’ll start by addressing potential logistical barriers: your schedule, insurance & payment. Then we’ll talk about what you are looking for and your reasons for seeking therapy. There is also an opportunity for you to ask questions. If for some reason things don’t seem like a good fit for you, I will offer you referrals.
Scheduling an appointment.
Once the system alerts me that you completed the portal documents, I’ll check your insurance benefits (if applicable). After that, I’ll contact you via email to introduce you to your therapist, let you know the estimated cost per session, and offer you appointment options. Once scheduled, you will get a confirmation email with logistics like getting to the office, how to enter the building and where to wait when you arrive or the online link for your session.
What happens in the first appointment?
In your first appointment, we will meet for 45-60 minutes to discuss your concerns. I may take notes in this meeting and ask you questions similar to those on the intake form. There will be time for you to ask questions and talk about what is most important to you.
I am looking forward to working with you!
