Your first visit will be scheduled as a 45 to 50 minute ‘session hour’ in which you will have a chance to discuss your concerns and issues. Your therapist will also collect some medical history and family history information from you as well as answer any questions you may have about her methods, style, and approach. This first visit is a good time for you to get a sense of how it might feel for you to do some of your important therapeutic work here with Christina. The two of you will also discuss a plan for moving forward, including frequency of visits, possible duration of treatment,and any financial arrangements that may be needed. It is quite common to start your therapy with an expectation of weekly sessions. This frequency might increase during a time of extreme emotional distress and might decrease gradually over time or if finances necessitate it.

The fee for your first session will be set when you schedule the appointment. Payment is required at the time of this and each successive session unless other arrangements have been made. Payment can be made by cash, check, MasterCard or Visa.
A 24 hour cancellation policy is standard for therapists. This differs from medical doctors who can see many people in an hour and can afford to be more flexible. Your timely cancellation will allow another client to use the time. We appreciate your consideration of your therapist’s as well as other client’s schedules. No charge will be assessed if adequate notice of 24 hours is given.
