In establishing a therapy relationship there are many factors to consider. Prior to scheduling an appointment, we will spend a few minutes in an initial phone contact to determine the next steps. This ensures, as much as possible, that you get directed to the best resource for your situation. Factors such as scheduling, the particulars of the situation needing addressed, and payment options are important considerations in moving forward with therapy.
At this time my schedule is particularly full. Preference will be given to clients that require specialized treatment that can be difficult to find. These include: children 2-7 who have experienced a trauma, loss or pending loss, who have a chronic medical condition, who have a terminal illness themselves or in the family, and to adults who specifically want to use SandTray, play and other expressive therapies.
