How do I make an appointment?
What can I expect?
Your initial session is called a Diagnostic Intake. This session is used to gather your history and for the therapist to get a full understanding of what is currently going on in your life.
When starting therapy, sessions are traditionally on a weekly basis and taper off as goals are reached, usually to every other week and then to once a month. Some clients choose to have check in session a few times a year or come back as needed when events such as a loss or significant life change occurs. Although this is a typical therapy timeline, the scheduling can be increased or decreased depending upon the level of stress and conflict in the your life.
Therapy sessions are usually 50-55 minutes in length.
You can expect to have homework such as activities, readings, or journaling. This helps incorporate the work you do in sessions into your everyday life.

Do you have a Discount/Sliding Fee Policy?
Yes. It is our policy to provide essential medical services regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. Discounts are offered based upon family/household size and annual income. A sliding fee schedule is used to calculate the basic discount and is updated each year using the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Once approved, the discount will be honored for three months, after which the patient must reapply.
