Unfortunately we do not offer free initial consultation to minimize risks for our clients. The moment client connects with a clinician, they are considered the clinician on record and even short consultations may increases chance of trauma risk for the clients. Additionally, similar to professions such as medical physicians, and lawyers, we provide services through our time. Although some mental health clinicians provide free initial consultations, we aim to focus on quality care. We strive to provide transparent services through disclosing treatment modalities, clinical specialties, rates, and psycho educational materials through our website. If you have any additional questions that is not covered in our website, we are more than happy to answer any non-clinical questions through emails.
In the event that you are unable to keep an appointment, please notify us with a minimum of two days (48 hours) in advance. Since appointments are 53 min to 89 min slots, our clinician secure that time for the client exclusively. Any missed appointment, late cancel or no-show for any reason and fail to give us an adequate notice, client will be responsible for the full scheduled session rate.
Your first session is a time for your psychotherapist to get to know you. Typically 45 minutes long, this is a time you can share your story and your reason for seeking counseling including your goals for therapy. Or even decide if you need therapy.
