About Your Visit
what to expect
Free initial phone consultation
This relaxed conversation gives you the opportunity to ask questions and decide if I am the right counselor for your needs. After you share a brief description of your current challenges, I will give you feedback about how I can help. Then we work together to schedule your first therapy appointment. If we decide you would be better served with another therapist, I will offer appropriate referrals.
Your first therapy appointment
The first appointment is longer than other sessions in order to allow time for us to get to know one another. I will complete a comprehensive health assessment, while you share as much of your background and current situation as feels comfortable for you. Together, we will formulate goals based on your personal priorities. We will also review privacy documents and policies.
75 minutes: $145
Regular therapy sessions
Your second and ongoing counseling sessions will address the specific goals identified during your first visit. Working together, we will formulate strategies, practice coping skills, and assemble a personalized "toolkit" to help manage your present and expected problems. Length of treatment varies based on your goals. With weekly visits and consistent practice of new skills, you will likely achieve your grief therapy goals in 4-6 months.
50 minutes: $120
