If you are new to therapy or just want to get some questions answered before you commit, please call me for a free phone consultation!
New patient appointments are 60-90 minute sessions and consist of information gathering questions to help me get to know you and gain a better understanding of how to help. Once I know more about how I can help and you’ve had a chance to ask any questions you have, we will review recommendations for therapy. At that time, we will review what your treatment will look like including session interval and expected discharge timeline.
Follow up sessions are 45-60 minutes and follow a treatment plan that you and I will create at your 2nd appointment. Periodically, we will review your treatment plan to ensure we are on track with your goals and making appropriate progress.
Appointments can be made via telephone or online through the link provided.
