Your First Session

As you step into my office for the first time, you will be made to feel welcome and comfortable. After starting with the  “New Client Info”, we will become curious and inviting about how your past and present experiences affect and shape you. Since life woundings typically happen through relationship, it follows that healing also happens in relationship with a trusted person.  

(A separate consent form will relate to the therapeutic use of touch. Incorporating touch is always at your pace – limited due to COVID)

I respectfully balance your need for acceptance for who you are with your need for change. Your care is held in confidence. The only exceptions to this confidentiality are:

  • 1) if you are at immediate danger to yourself or
  • 2) others,
  • 3) if a child is in danger of neglect or abuse, and
  • 4) if your charts are subpoenaed by court.

You will be asked for payment at the close of the session and you may seek compensation from your insurance sources or spending plans independently. You may wish to contact your insurance ahead of time to ask about your specific coverage plan for OT.

You are free to express any thoughts or preferences you have about therapy, including requesting additional, or alternate, referrals. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and I commit to assisting you in speaking up for what you value and need.

We work on what you want to work on, and spend time on what you find beneficial for your healing, with clear guidance from me on why I am suggesting the interventions I suggest.

to be touched, they say, your hands, your heart

Time for a poem:

wash your hands like you are washing the only teacup left that your great grandmother carried across the ocean, like you are washing the hair of a beloved who is dying, like you are washing the feet of grace lee boggs, beyonce, jesus, your auntie, audre lorde, mary oliver- you get the picture. 
like this water is poured from a jug your best friend just carried for three miles from the spring they had to climb a mountain to reach.
like water is a precious resource made from time and miracle.
