FREE CONSULTATION CALL

20230904_185015_edited.jpg

Seriously, A FREE CHAT - no strings attached. All interested persons begin with scheduling a 25 minute phone call where we both share our needs and see if we fit well enough to move forward.

 

EMAIL to book your call, and if possible offer a little about your availability and interests in therapy. 

We do our best to turn consults into clients - provided your needs falls within our scope of service, skill and cultural competency. 

 

Unfortunately, there are limitations. If it's determined the best course of treatment for you is a more specialized or higher level of care - we will do the ground work to provide you with appropriate referrals.

​approach to intake

  • All intakes are trauma informed; culturally sensitive; shame-free and approached with respect, compassion and comfort.  

  • No wrong answer - we use this intake session to see you, and let you see us in a casual, conversational way. This is all about two humans seeking connection at the start of a new therapeutic relationship.

  • You are in charge of the information flow. We need only the information you feel is pertinent to share about you at the start of therapy. There is no need for trauma dumping or sharing adverse life experiences if you don't want to.

  • Mandatory, once in a lifetime! After this session you will not need to complete it again, even after leaving and returning to therapy later on.
