What to expect
YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION
What to expect from your therapist
During your first session, your therapist answers any and all questions you have, so that you understand the therapeutic process fully.
When you’re with your therapist, it should feel like a “good fit” and you should feel comfortable talking to them.
Keep in mind that psychotherapy usually requires multiple visits – it equips you with life-long solutions, not a quick fix.
During your first session, you will discuss:
- Your symptoms
- What brought you to therapy
- What changes you would like to make in your life
- Your history, including childhood experiences, relationships (family, friends, romantic), current living situation, work, goals and aspirations.
By the end of the first session, your therapist should be able to give you a compassionate summary of your concerns and suggest potential treatment strategies and steps to take to meet your goals.
what to expect from yourself
Every person experiences therapy differently. With the correct therapist supporting you, and a willingness to be open and honest with yourself, therapy helps you become the person you want to be.
Therapy is a significant investment of time, money and energy. To make the most of it, you have to make time in your life to work in therapy and get the results you want.
Your therapist is there to help you manage changes in your life with strategies, gentle feedback, skill development, resources, and emotional support.
Each step forward makes the next step more achievable and brings you closer to your goal.
The rewards of therapy increase over time as you decrease your stress, anger, confusion or sadness and increase your confidence, clarity and happiness. It can be hard, but ultimately it will be rewarding.
Telehealth - Online therapy
Due to Covid, Telehealth has become the norm in therapy. All sessions are currently conducted remotely through a HIPAA compliant, secure platform. As with all our therapy sessions, anything discussed is treated with complete discretion and total privacy.
All you need is:
- Wifi or direct internet access
- A smart phone, tablet or computer with a microphone and camera

Payment is due at the beginning of each session via debit or credit card.
We currently do not accept medical insurance, however, if you have a PPO, we may be considered an out-of-network provider.
In that instance, we can provide you with a super bill and you can then pursue reimbursement directly with your insurance provider.
Please contact your PPO insurance provider to inquire about the process of reimbursement for mental health services with an out-of-network provider and about the process for you to submit a super bill.
Missed Appointments & Cancellations
Sometimes emergencies come up. If you need to cancel or change an appointment time, 24-hour notice is required.
If 24 hours notice is given in advance, you will not be charged the regular fee for the time reserved for your appointment.
