You can download the forms by clicking the yellow “New Client Forms” link at the top of any page. If you cannot bring the paperwork with you I will have it for you to fill out upon your arrival.
We see clients in the mornings, afternoon and the evenings to accommodate people with full-time jobs.

It is always best for treatment if we can meet on a consistent basis.

The first appointment will consist of the counselor getting to know the client. This usually consists of creating a genogram (a family tree), going over a brief family history and discussing any current issue(s) to work on. We will also create a list of goals to work on during your treatment. Please come to sessions prepared to work on a treatment issue. The more prepared and ready to discus your issue the more progress we can make.
Yes! If you’d like we can send you a text message the day of your appointment to remind you. Just let us know if you’d like this service. Your phone number is kept confidential and you will not be solicited with any other information.
