Before your first appointment

What should I expect in my first therapy session?

Your first therapy session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and set the foundation for our therapeutic relationship. You can expect a safe and confidential environment where you are free to express yourself openly. During this session, we’ll discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, your goals and expectations, and any specific concerns or questions you may have.


I’ll ask you about your background, including your personal history and current life circumstances, to better understand your unique situation. It’s a time for you to share what’s been on your mind and what led you to seek therapy. I’ll also explain the therapeutic process, including confidentiality and our approach to treatment.


Most importantly, our first session is a chance for you to determine if you feel comfortable and if our therapeutic approach aligns with your needs. It’s perfectly normal to have questions and uncertainties, and we’ll work together to address them. Over time, our sessions will become more structured as we delve into your concerns, set goals, and work towards your well-being.

How do I prepare for my first appointment?

Preparing for your first therapy session is a proactive step that can set the tone for a positive therapeutic journey. To get the most out of your initial session, take a moment to reflect on your goals and what you hope to achieve in therapy. Consider the main issues or concerns that have led you to seek therapy. It can be helpful to jot down questions or topics you’d like to discuss during the session to ensure you don’t forget anything important. Be open-minded and willing to explore your thoughts and feelings. Remember that therapy is a safe and nonjudgmental space for self-exploration. Understand that therapy may take time, and the first session is just the beginning of your journey to improved well-being. As your therapist, I am here to guide and support you, so feel free to discuss any concerns or questions you have during your initial meeting.

What is the benefit of therapy?

Therapy offers numerous benefits that can significantly enhance your well-being. It provides a safe and confidential space for you to openly express your thoughts and feelings. Through this process, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your emotions, and your behaviors.

Therapy also equips you with valuable tools and coping strategies to manage life’s challenges, stressors, and mental health concerns. It can improve your communication skills, help you set and achieve goals, and enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence. By working together, we can identify and address the issues that matter to you, enabling you to develop the skills to overcome challenges, foster healthier relationships, and ultimately lead a more fulfilling life.

Your Appointments

How do I know that therapy is working?

Knowing if therapy is working can vary from person to person, but there are several indicators that can help you gauge your progress. First, consider whether you’re experiencing a reduction in the intensity and frequency of the symptoms or issues that led you to therapy. If you’re feeling better, more in control, or finding healthier ways to cope, it’s a positive sign. Another indicator is an improvement in your overall quality of life, including better relationships, increased self-awareness, and greater emotional resilience. Additionally, as your therapist, we will collaborate together to set and achieve specific goals, and reaching these milestones can be a clear signal of progress. Ultimately, trust your own feelings – if you’re feeling heard, understood, and supported in therapy, these are good signs that the therapeutic process is working for you. Always feel free to discuss your concerns with your therapist, as open communication can also be a positive indicator of therapy’s effectiveness.

Is therapy confidential?

Yes, therapy is highly confidential. As a therapist, I am legally and ethically bound to protect your privacy and the information you share during our sessions. What you discuss in therapy remains between us. There are very few exceptions where I may need to break confidentiality including if there’s a risk of harm to yourself or others, or if there’s a legal requirement to do so. However, these situations are rare and would be discussed with you beforehand whenever possible. Your trust and comfort are paramount in the therapeutic process, and I’m committed to providing a safe, confidential space where you can openly explore your thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of judgment or breaches of confidentiality.

How long do appointments last?

The length of each session is 50 minutes. 

What is your cancellation policy?

Appointments that are not canceled or rescheduled within less than 24 hours will result in a $100 cancellation fee. 

Is it normal to feel uncomfortable in a therapy session?

Yes, it’s completely normal to feel uncomfortable in a therapy session, especially at the beginning. Therapy often delves into personal and sometimes challenging topics. This discomfort is a natural part of the process as you open up and explore your thoughts and feelings. Over time, as trust and rapport develop between us, these feelings of discomfort tend to subside, and therapy can become a more comfortable and supportive space for you to share and work through your concerns. It’s all part of the journey towards personal growth and healing.

At this time, I am currently only accepting clients who are 18 years of age and older. I am happy to provide referrals if you are seeking psychotherapy for children and adolescence.
