Starting Psychotherapy

Here are the things that you will want to know about therapy before you start. There are also downloadable versions of forms you will need to complete.

You can save time by using these resources on the web, but of course you are always encouraged to bring up specific questions directly with me. In fact, everything here is also available directly from me. Let me know if you would like me to send in the postal mail or e-mail these materials to you.
