The cozy downstairs conference room will greet you with a wide variety of magazines and soft music.  Please make yourself comfortable here, or at the outdoor patio area, and I will come out to greet you at our scheduled time.  

   Please arrive 10-15 min. early for your first appointment in order to fill out necessary intake paperwork.  I will leave a clipboard for you, under my business cards, with the following forms:
  • Intake Form- Basic Client Demographic form, which asks for name, address, very brief history, and reason for seeking counseling at this time
  • Information for Client Form- this form emphasizes the terms of confidentiality, fee for service, and cancellation policy.

   Please fill out and sign these forms so that we may discuss them once session begins.  The initial session is usually the best opportunity to discuss what is bringing you to therapy, what changes you would like to see during the experience, and any concerns or questions you may have.  I will incorporate a description of my therapeutic style and how I will be working to provide you with the most effective therapeutic experience possible.  I look forward to working with you!
