Sometimes adults and teens are a little nervous about what will happen in the first session. This is completely normal! Here are some things you might be wondering about:




My office building is located on a pedestrian walkway, however there is plenty of free parking in a nearby Park and Ride, which I'll give you directions to before we meet. My office is located on the second floor (there's no elevator).


What Should I Bring with Me?


Please fill out all legal and intake forms beforehand in the Sessions Health portal. Divorced parents, please also remember to bring in your custody agreement for your kiddo's chart.

It will also be helpful if you already know information about your insurance, such as: your copay/co-insurance, your deductable, and whether you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). You can find insurance information by calling the number for customer services on the back of your card. Please also remember that anything other than a 30-min. complementary consultation will be charged for your intake and subsequent sessions. You will either pay your co-pay, your co-insurance, the full contracted rate if you have a deductible, or your out-of-pocket session fee if you will be a private-pay client.


Cancellation Policy


You are responsible for keeping track of your appointments on your phone or in your calendar; I am not always able to send reminders. Please cancel or reschedule your appointment within 24 hours, otherwise you will be charged a 50.00 late cancellation fee.


Setting You Up for Success in Therapy


  • You get out of therapy what you put into it; therapy might seem like a lot of hard work at times, but it is worth it!
  • I can't fix your problems (I wish I could!), but I can facilitate integration and give you tools for healing--which you can then carry with you for the rest of your life.
  • To get the most out of your therapy and to heal most effectively, it is important to come regularly--ideally once or even twice a week but we can discuss what is most feasible for you. 
  • Give yourself a little time after therapy to process what we've talked about, and to practice self-care. This is especially important after EMDR processing sessions.
  • Therapy goes at its own pace--sometimes fast and sometimes slow. Be patient with your own progress, and congratulate yourself on giving yourself this incredible gift!
