Making the decision to pursue or re-enter therapy takes courage and can be scary. It can also be the best decision of your life. I honor this courage and work hard to make starting therapy as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
Here’s what you can expect as you start the process:
1) Schedule an appointment. You can call me at 531-721-1813 or email: KellyBrownCounseling@gmail.com to arrange an appointment. If you're still unsure you are ready to make an appointment, it’s okay to call to determine if you think we might be a good fit and to ask any questions you may have about therapy.
2) Paperwork. Prior to your session, I will email my new client intake paperwork through my secure online portal. There you will be able to complete everything and it will automatically be sent back to me. Very easy!
3) First session. During our first session, we’ll spend an hour together to ensure we are a good fit. I will briefly go over some "housekeeping" items. After, the rest of the hour is yours, of course with my help and guidance.
4) Length of treatment. I truly believe that everyone is an individual and that people have different needs. Most people find it most helpful to meet once a week (50minute session) to start and taper down when and if they feel necessary. My door is always open and you decide when you want to stop therapy or even restart again.
