What to expect
Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long. In the initial session, we talk about the history and extent of the concern that you are coming to counselling for in order for me to complete a thorough assessment. Together, we will set goals to work on in counselling. Some people choose to come weekly for sessions, others more or less frequently depending on circumstances. Some people come weekly initially during the most acute time of their problems and then taper off services to biweekly or once per month to maintain their wellness.
I offer appointments on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
I offer free initial 20 minute telephone consultations.
