How do i choose the right counselor?

The therapeutic relationship should feel like a "fit." It is my goal that you feel safe to express who you are and share your emotions in our sessions. As you share your needs, I will be able to further assess whether my areas of expertise will be suitable for your concerns.  

is therapy confidential?

Yes. Federal and state law prohibits sharing any information without your written permission.

what will my first counseling sessions look like?

During our initial sessions, it will be helpful for me to understand why you are seeking counseling, what your immediate needs are, and what your background looks like (family, relationships, medical, personal).  Together we will create a treatment plan for short and long-term therapeutic goals.
