HOW DOES THE FIRST THERAPY SESSION LOOK LIKE?

During this session, you can decide whether you feel comfortable enough to proceed with them in the therapy process.

Incase, you as well as the therapist decide to continue, goals for the therapy will be set in this session.

Everyone's recovery or healing journey is different. Some take less time while others take more time. Depending on the progress, number of sessions can be planned.

DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
