All prospective clients receive a no-charge 30 minute in person consultation. The most important part of therapy is a good therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. Typically after 30 minutes a prospective client is able to determine their comfort levels with their therapist. Consultations can be done on their own or combined with an initial session. Note that if Kevin is not the therapist for you, he will be happy to help refer you to somebody that is a better fit.
