Complimentary Consultation: How it Works

Prior to working with a client, I like to provide a complimentary consultation. The purpose of this consultation is to get to know each other; discuss the purpose and goals for our sessions; and provide my recommendation for how to best move forward.

 Once you decide you'd like to work with me, I draft a tentative agreement and email it to you for review and feedback. After incorporating necessary edits, I bring the finalized agreement for signing to our first session.
