We believe in taking the time to get to know all of our clients individually. We spend 1 hour during our first appointment, creating an environment of trust and communication which fosters the best client outcome. My follow-up appointments are twice as long as other providers, cementing the collaborative relationship between the provider and client.

What to Expect During Your First Visits
After you schedule an appointment with us, your first meeting will last approximately 45-60 minutes. During that time we will ask you to fill out HIPAA forms as well as several forms about confidentiality, privacy, and an acknowledgment that you understand accept our policies and procedures. Those forms can be emailed to you so that you can fill them out ahead of time, if you’d prefer. During your first visit we will discuss your current needs and medical history, family history, and any psychiatric history or medication trials.
Your follow-up appointment will last 30 minutes. We’ll discuss any challenges you’re struggling with, along with how medication is or is not working for you. Based on our conversation, we will adjust your medication as needed or prescribe something. Before we prescribe anything or make any changes in your correct medication regimen, we will thoroughly discuss both the benefits and risks. Our goal is for you to be fully informed and involved in your treatment. We always encourage our clients to exercise regularly and eat healthily and can provide information to help you do so. Over the years we have learned that clients benefit the most when they take their medication, follow a healthy lifestyle, take supplements as recommended, and commit to any addition psychotherapy as necessary.
