Getting Started

Step 1: Reach out

The process starts with you reaching out to our office to share a bit about what is happening and what the concerns are.  We likely will have follow up questions, so don't be alarmed if we email back with asking for more information.  We want to make sure we have enough of an understanding of what is happening to make an informed decision about continuing with the intake process.  I want your child to have the very best services!  If I feel that their current needs are outside of my scope of practice or expertise, I want to point you in the direction of a more appropriate therapist.  My priority is kids getting connected with the therapist who will best meet their needs. 

Step 2: Schedule parent only intake  and create online portal account 

Once it seems like I may be a good fit for your family, we will set up a parent only intake appointment.  This appointment is $300 and 60 minutes long.  

After we determine the date and time for the appointment, I will set up a profile for you in Therapy Appointment, my scheduling system.  You will get an email to set up your online portal with Therapy Appointment for future scheduling and to send secure messages to me. 

Step 3: Parent only intake session

Before meeting with any new client, I have a full parent only intake session. During this meeting, I gather more information about what is happening with your child, their history, family history, your goals, etc.  I also discuss how I work and how we would partner to support your child.  My approach may be different than other therapists' and so I want to talk upfront about how we would partner together to support your child so that you can decide if I am the right fit for what you are looking for.  If you feel that my approach is not the right fit, I totally understand.! It is vital that you have a therapist you feel comfortable with and whose approach you is aligned with what you are looking for.  If you feel I am not a fit, I am happy to share referral information for other therapists.

Step 4: First session with your child 

My first session with your child will involve both rapport building and assessment.  It is important that we take time to establish a relationship, as this is the foundation upon which any therapeutic work will happen.
