In just 3 steps, you can be well on your way to living the life you want to live.
- Schedule a free 15 minute initial consultation with a therapist that suits you
- Meet with the therapist to learn about each other and determine whether it makes sense to work together
- If you both decide it makes sense to work together, schedule your first session.
The initial consultation is an important first step to making a change! To learn about the difference between an initial consultation and a first session, see our blog posts.
