A good therapeutic relationship can provide us with a unique opportunity to gently explore our experience within a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space.
With increasing insight, awareness and understanding of our experience, we can make the changes that feel right for us,reducing suffering and fostering growth.
In the space of our relationship, you may expect: safety, empathy, continuity, respect, understanding, confidentiality and likely some moments of shared joy.
Following the initial telephone or email contact, as it is important that we feel a comfortable “fit” within the relationship, I offer a free (no obligation) initial 1-hour meeting where we can get a first-hand sense of one another. During this time we can also see if what I offer has a close enough fit with your needs and expectations of therapy and clarify any questions you may bring with you.
Should we decide to begin working together, meetings will take place weekly for one hour. As it is good practice to periodically review the work together, you can expect the first of these “check-ins” after approximately six sessions.
The therapeutic journey is a very personal and unique one. As such the content, direction and pace are ideally guided by each individual client. Likewise, the duration of therapy can vary from a few months to several years depending on the needs and desires of each person.
My current rate for in person work is $130-$150 per 60min session (concessions periodically available)
