Getting Started

Starting the process to begin therapy is a courageous step toward personal growth, self-discovery, and well-being.  I am  here to support you on this transformative journey and make the process as easy as possible to get started. Whether you are seeking assistance with specific challenges, exploring personal development, or navigating life transitions, I am  ready to guide you.

1. Explore the Website:

Take a moment to familiarize yourself with a little bit more about me and areas I specialize in , such as  identity exploration,  men's issues , anxiety and trauma recovery. This can help you identify if  you believe I can be a good fit to assist you with your unique needs and goals.

2. Contact Me for a Consultation:

Ready to take the next step? Reach out to me by phone, email, or the contact section below  to schedule a brief 15 minute consultation over the phone. During this initial meeting, you can discuss your concerns, ask any questions you may have, and get a sense of the therapeutic process. It's an opportunity for you to explore in more depth whether I am  the right fit for your needs.

3. Complete the Intake Forms:

Prior to your first session, I will provide you with intake forms to complete. These forms help me gain a better understanding of your background, concerns, and goals. Filling them out in advance allows us to maximize our time together during your initial session.

4. Attend Your First Session:

Your first session is a chance to further discuss your goals, explore what brings you to therapy, and  for us to begin building a collaborative relationship. It's a safe and confidential space for you to share your experiences and start the process of healing and growth.

5. Set Goals and Expectations:

Working together, you and I will establish realistic and personalized goals for your therapy journey. Establishing clear expectations ensures that you are actively involved in shaping the direction of your sessions and that your therapy experience aligns with your needs.

6. Embrace the Journey:

Therapy is a dynamic and evolving process. Be patient with yourself as you navigate this journey of self-discovery and growth. Each session is an opportunity to learn, heal, and develop the tools needed to overcome challenges and achieve your goals.
