What does a first session with you look like?

Seeking therapy can be intimidating, causing many to shy away from asking for help, please rest assure that we will move at your pace to assure a comfortable process. The primary focus of our earlier interactions is to set a comfortable, empowering and judge free environment. Our first session will focus on getting to know each other and understanding the therapeutic process, this assist in understanding your situation and what may be bringing you to therapy. I will conduct an initial assessment which will last approximately 1 hour, this involves answering questions which will assist me in the best way to help you and the issue at hand. Any questions you may have, you're always welcomed to ask during the initial session and any to follow.
