Prospective Clients

The kind of relationship you have with your therapist is the best indicator of your success in reaching your counseling goals, so this is the most important question to be asking yourself in your search for the right counselor for you. 

Therapy is not just talking about your problems. It is an active process of creating healing and growth. My role is not just to listen, but to support you and hold you accountable to your growth.

If you are my client, I will expect you to:

  • ​show up consistently to sessions

  • be willing to feel your feelings

  • engage as an active participant in the process of your growth

  • be open to learning and change

  • be honest with me about what you want from your counseling process and your life, relationships, and mental health

  • engage between sessions by practicing new skills, completing challenge tasks, and staying dedicated to your healing

  • honor my professional boundaries around fees, scheduling, etc.

  • be honest with me about what is and isn't helpful for you in therapy (because as your therapist, I truly want the best for you!)

Couples therapy is an active process of repair and growth, and I am not just a mediator. My role is to help you two understand the disconnect happening in your relationship, and to support and challenge you both as you take risks to learn a new way of being together.

If you are my client, I will expect you both to:

  • ​show up consistently to sessions

  • engage as active participants in the process of your relationship's healing and growth by taking ownership of your own shortcomings, and by taking steps to learn a new way of being together

  • treat your partner with respect

  • commit to caring for your individual mental health and wellness throughout the couples therapy process

  • be open to learning and change

  • be honest with me 

  • engage between sessions by practicing new skills, completing challenge tasks, and staying dedicated to your healing

  • be dedicated to healing and growing your relationship. (If you're not both committed to repair, I am not the best fit for your relationship.)

  • honor my professional boundaries around fees, scheduling, in-session rules, etc.

  • be honest with me about what is and isn't helpful for you in therapy (because as your therapist, I truly want the best for you two and your relationship!)

Have you read about who I am, what services I offer to my individual and couple clients, and my policies around fees and insurance?
