It is completely normal to feel overwhelmed, scared or anxious about your first appointment. Please let me know what I can do to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

What to expect
  • Let's start by saying forget everything you have seen on TV. There are no chaise lounges and I don’t just say "mm hum" the entire session. I am a very transparent therapist who tries to explain what I am doing while I am doing it and why.
  • I find it comforting to know what to expect each session. So, I try to create this for you.
    In our first appointment, we will spend time getting to know each other, setting up goals and expectations, and completing paperwork.
  • I may have some letters behind my name, but I am still a stranger and I understand this. I allow space and time to build a trusting relationship.
  • You will leave each appointment with tangible take away skills and insights to apply to your daily life. When doing EMDR, these skills and insights look a little different and are still there.
  • I encourage teamwork and open communication. We will work together toward change. You are encouraged to ask for your needs in therapy.
  • Before your first appointment, you will receive an e-mail with several different documents. Feel free to complete as many as you feel comfortable. There is no need to print forms as all signatures are electronic.
  • Part of this email is an invitation to join the consumer portal. This allows you to send encrypted e-mails and fill out necessary information before your first appointment. It also allows you to schedule future appointments. ​

It is easiest to park in the back of the building. The stairs are directly to your right as you come in. My office is on the right side of the hallway. If the door to the office is closed feel free to help yourself to coffee, tea, or water in the lobby. I will be with you shortly.
 
Please call if you get lost or need assistance.
