It’s important to find a therapist who you feel comfortable talking to and who has experience that will help them help you. To begin, we recommend reviewing our Therapist Bios to see who interests you.
Our front office staff is extremely knowledgeable on our therapists, their specialties, and personalities. When you contact us to set up an appointment we will get some basic contact information, your health insurance information, schedule availability, and an idea of what you are looking for from therapy. We will use that information to get you scheduled with a therapist who meets your needs.
Please bring your insurance card and ID so we can make a copy. There will be some paperwork for you to fill out, so come about 15 minutes early (Print it off and fill it out ahead of time by visiting Client Forms).
We will ask for current medications and provider information, so please have that handy as well.
Typically a session lasts for one hour. The initial session will sometimes take a little longer.

This will be something discussed between you and your therapist based on your goals and treatment plan.
Your first appointment will be very similar to a first doctor’s appointment. You will check in at our front desk, fill out paperwork, and wait for your therapist to come out to greet you and take you to their office.

If you feel uncomfortable answering any of the questions in your paperwork, you can wait until you meet with the therapist to go over the questions together and discuss.
The first visit with your therapist is a time for you and your therapist to get acquainted and get an idea of how to proceed. They will ask you about symptoms, childhood, relationships, current living situation, and your career.
Psychotherapy is not an instant fix, and will likely require multiple visits. Future visits will be more therapeutic in nature and will explore specific symptoms/traumas/challenges you mentioned in the first session. Depending on your goals, therapy can last anywhere from a few sessions to several years.
Hours vary greatly, depending on therapist. Their hours fall anywhere between 8am and 8pm, and we offer limited weekend availability.
