Where is your office located?
Currently, my practice is located with Freed Bodyworks at 1337 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington DC 20003 (about 3 blocks equidistant from Potomac and Eastern Market Metros - yellow/blue/orange line).
What can I expect from our first session? What comes next?
This first session is a time for us to decide whether we are a good match. This involves a conversation about what brings you to therapy, your current and past struggles, relevant history, and hopes for the future. This can often take up to two sessions. At the end of the first or second session, you can expect to have some clarity about the course and goals of therapy. Before we meet, I will ask you to complete a brief intake form describing your presenting concerns. We will then continue to meet weekly or biweekly to explore and untangle your issues with the aim of furthering your growth and helping you reach your therapeutic goals.
How long do appointments last?
Appointments are 45 minutes or 60 minutes for individual appointments (your choice). I offer 75 minutes partners or family sessions. A longer session can be useful when dealing with the complexities of couples and families.
How often will we meet?
To begin, we will meet once a week. I find it’s important to gain some momentum in the beginning by meeting weekly or progress can stall out. Once some or all of your goals are met, meeting less often will make sense.
Can we meet virtually? Do you provide online counseling?
I find that the best therapy happens with face-to-face sessions. I plan to establish video sessions down the line for those folks wishing to have a session while out of town.
