Getting Started

What to Expect at the First Session: 
     
In the first meeting, we review your concerns and circumstances, and plan for a brief evaluation, usually 4-6 sessions.  We  then meet to review your concerns, and I present my formulation of the case: the nature of the problem/s and possible underlying causes, pros and cons of the available options, and the treatment plan or plans that I would recommend.  At that point we can negotiate a treatment plan to which we can agree and move forward, or I can refer you to alternative resources.

Before we first meet, I will send you New Client Information Form: and Consent and Agreement for Psychological Services.  Please read the contract carefully and feel free to contact me with questions.  To save time, you can fill these forms out and bring them to your first appointment.

    We request payment at time of service unless other arrangements are made. 
        Payment can be by check, credit card (3% fee), or cash.
