Preparing for Care

Like many things in life, taking the first step is usually the hardest thing to do. I know that choosing to engage a therapist in the health and well-being of your child, yourself and/or your family may not be an easy decision to make. With that in mind, here are a few things for you to consider prior to your first visit:

  1. Developing a plan takes partnership. I promise to listen carefully to your concerns, and you must be willing to do the same with my feedback.
  2. The first visit is a fact finding one for me. I will ask many questions about your child and your family life. Open and honest communication will help me determine what is the best course of therapy and help us establish a foundation of trust.
  3. As I work to understand your concerns, you should also be evaluating whether you think I will be a good fit for your child and/or your family. I welcome your questions and will answer them to the best of my ability
  4. As I have indicated throughout my website, there is no “one size fits all” plan. The first visit is an important step in determining the best pathways for treatment.

On your first visit, remember to bring:

  • Verifiable ID (Driver’s license, Military Id, etc.)
  • Insurance information
  • If applicable, your Child’s Individual Education Program (IEP)
