How Long Does The First Appointment Last?

Initial meetings run from 30 to 40 minutes, accounting for the initial consultation. Subsequent sessions last 20 to 30 minutes each.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

The number of sessions will vary. Please discuss this with a medical professional or with the therapist during your initial consultation. This matter is handled on a case by case basis, so there is no “standard number” of sessions.

Can I Schedule An Appointment On A Weekend?

Saturday appointments are available from 8am to 12pm. If you wish to schedule a session on a Sunday or a holiday, please contact us for availability.
