Please read this entire page before scheduling. 

It will save you time!

My schedule is full through the end of June.
 July is now open for booking.

*Please note:  I am not accepting new couples clients at this time.*

All of my openings appear on in real time. I do not keep a waitlist. All cancelations are first-come, first-served. Calling my office will not result in finding additional openings.


For each appointment you make, you must select your location when scheduling. Choose either "In-person" or "Telehealth" so I know how you would like to have your visit.

After you schedule your first appointment, you will receive email messages from directing you to your client portal to read important messages about your first session. If you do not receive these messages within 24 hours of making your appointment, please check your client portal and your spam/junk mail folder.

Please register using the first and last name of the client. If you are scheduling a session for your child (I see children ages 13 and older only), please use his or her name. Clients 18 and older should schedule their own appointments.

To ensure that you do not have to wait several weeks for follow-up sessions and that you will be able to get appointments on days/at times that are most convenient for you, I strongly encourage you to schedule several appointments at a time.  As a general rule, I recommend weekly appointments for at least the first 3 or 4 sessions.


You are welcome to cancel your appointments at no cost to you, as long as you do so with at least 24 hours' noticeIf you choose to schedule one appointment at a time, you may have difficulty getting appointments in the timeframe you desire.  


Appointments before 10am and after 1:30pm are often in high demand - appointments after 3pm may be booked up to 8 weeks in advance. 

Please note, if you miss an appointment or cancel with fewer than 24 hours' notice, a $75 fee will be assessed to your account. Note: 15 minutes or more late to an appointment is considered a missed appointment.

Once again, all of my openings appear on in real time. Calling my office will not result in finding a sooner opening.
