Have a Question?

  • What to expect in the first session?
    The first session is typically an intake session where the psychotherapist will gather information about your past and current experiences to develop a holistic understanding of how they can support you. This allows for the therapist and the client to build rapport with each other, to learn more about the client and to allow the client to discuss reasons for starting their therapeutic journey.
  • What to expect in therapy?
    Relaxed and safe environment, collaborative approach to creating goals and fostering a healthy therapeutic relationship. During sessions you can expect our therapists to encourage you to discuss current stressors/topics of concerns. We will work together to navigate challenging conversations and to support you through coping with certain feelings and emotions. It is also extremely common to feel nervous or anxious about attending therapy, resistance to therapy is normal as it can be overwhelming at times.

With the right therapist, you can feel safe to express, explore and emote free of judgment.
