“We understand taking the first step into seeking therapy and trying to select a therapist that not only has the experience you are seeking but also feels like they would be a good match can feel intimidating and overwhelming. You may feel anxious about making that initial call to ask for help. Please know those feelings are completely normal, and our compassionate and knowledgeable Scheduling Coordinators are dedicated to make the process as comfortable as possible for you.”

– Dr. Richard Wemhoff, Ph.D., Clinic Owner


As all initial sessions are scheduled by our Scheduling Coordinators, your first step is to contact our Schedulers who are very knowledgeable with our therapist’s skills and modalities and after gaining an understanding of what you are seeking with your therapy sessions, they will provide you with recommendations on available providers and guide you through the intake process of becoming a new client with us. Our schedulers are here to assist you every step of the way in setting up your initial appointment and taking care of you outside of your therapy sessions.
