What does a first session with you look like?

Getting to know and trust a new person is difficult. My goal in the first few sessions is to build rapport, trust, and establish goals. By the end of the third session we will be likely already working on one of the goals you created. I use those goals as a compass so that my clients are able to see their progress over time. I work with clients both short-term and long-term depending on their goals and progress towards goals.
