HOW DO I BEGIN TO TAKE THE NEXT RIGHT STEP ON THIS JOURNEY?
Contact us for an initial phone consultation so we can see if we might be a good fit together and to better understanding what you are looking for in a counselor. Once we can agree on a day and time that works for both us, you can fill out our Intake paperwork and we can get started.
