Getting Started

We know that taking the first step to reaching out for counseling can be scary and overwhelming, but we’re happy to walk you through the process. We offer a free 15-minute phone consultation with a counselor to discuss services and answer your questions about how counseling may be helpful for you or your loved ones. You are also welcome to complete the Contact Us form here and one of our counselors will reach out to you. If during the initial phone consultation it is determined that our office is not the best fit, we will make every effort to provide you with referrals to other trusted providers in the community.


The first appointment is referred to as the Intake Session where you will meet your counselor, review paperwork, process your specific concerns for yourself (or child), and establish a plan for counseling sessions moving forward. When seeking counseling for your child, we ask that only parents attend this intake session in order to allow for parents to speak candidly about your concerns. Scheduling of regular weekly sessions will also occur within this session. If you are attending an intake session for a child psycho-educational assessment, please click here for more information about the specific process associated with our psycho-educational assessments.
