your first visit


If you've never been to therapy, the idea of getting help may seem unfamiliar- strange even. During our first session, we'll spend time exploring how therapy might help you and your goals and expectations of treatment. I can help explain the process of therapy and together we'll set a course for your treatment and discuss how we'll measure success.

One important thing to know is that the pacing and process of therapy is driven by you. I will function as your guide, but this work is your own and we will only explore topics as you feel ready to do so.

Before our first session, I will request that you download, print and complete/read one or more forms (on the Forms page.) Please bring these forms to our first session. If you have any questions about the information contained or requested in any of these forms, I'm glad to assist you in any way I can. We can address those questions in our first session.

My office is located at 2910 East Madison. When you arrive, take the stairs or elevator to the second floor and have a seat in the waiting area, I will come get you.

I look forward to meeting you.
