Many people feel awkward about scheduling an appointment with a therapist, especially those who have never been in counseling before. Feeling concerned or apprehensive at the outset is certainly understandable..
You will likely find your first appointment interesting, pleasant and almost certainly reassuring. My goal is to help you understand and develop practical solutions for the emotional, interpersonal or family problems that brought you to this point.
You can generally count on leaving your first session confident that I understand the problems you have presented and have clear concrete solutions to offer. Half of my cases are closed in under six sessions, most with good and lasting results.
