About me

Your preliminary session is free and lasts up to 90 minutes. I know just how nerve-racking it can be to see a new therapist or to enter therapy for the first time so we can meet up and talk and it won't cost you a thing.

I do this because the most important factor in predicting the success of any therapy is whether you and the therapist hit it off and whether you feel comfortable in working with that person. For my part I can listen to what you want and then let you know whether I feel I can help and if I feel that I can not, I will recommend someone who can and that service is free of charge.
