Message to clients

I know it can be a big step to reach out for support. If you feel ready to start therapy or just have questions about services I provide, contact me via e-mail. I’m nice, I promise. Just send me a short e-mail and we can set up a time for a phone call. I'm available mostly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and looking for clients in the West Hartford area who can come in-person to appointments. When contacting me please note your availability (days/times), where you're located, and type of insurance you have.

Typically we start with a short phone consultation and if you'd like to proceed, we will have an initial intake session to collect all information and go over procedures, consents, releases, and other documents. After that you can expect to schedule for weekly 1 hour therapy sessions with treatment plan reviews every 3 months to check on progress, goal and objectives.

Therapy should be collaborative experience. It can be challenging at times, but if you're ready to do the work it can be one of the most rewarding experiences.
