Prior to scheduling your first appointment, I will need to speak directly with you. This is typically a 10-15 minute conversation.
(From a blog post, March 23, 2023: )
"When a new client contacts me, I want to speak with them by phone before scheduling their appointment. I want to find out what their expectations/hopes are for a session. I also want to find out a bit about their history and why they are seeking treatment, and see if we would be a "good fit" to work together. I want to be able to help determine what length sessions might be best for them (Right now, I offer session lengths of 30, 45, 60, and 75 minutes. I have, based upon client needs, offered 15 minute sessions.), and then we can proceed to schedule their appointment based upon our overlapping availability.
When I schedule clients I also take into account the other types of sessions I will have that day/week.
These are some of the reasons I do not offer online scheduling."

If you find the answering machine on, please leave a message. Because of my schedule, I am sometimes not able to return calls immediately. If I have not returned your call within 2 days, it would be because of an answering machine glitch; please call again or email me.
(Please see the separate page for COVID Related Policies and Protocols. in addition to regular health/intake forms, I now have COVID related forms that must be carefully read, and honestly, accurately, and fully filled out prior to an appointment.)
