To assist you in deciding if you would like to participate with me in psychotherapy and counseling, and because selecting a psychotherapist is a decision that can be very meaningful and personal, I kindly and generously offer, AT NO CHARGE, an INITIAL CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION without obligation, which you and I can share over the telephone or in the comfort of my peaceful psychotherapy and counseling office located in Encino, in the heart of the San Fernando Valley.
As I indicate on my professional psychotherapy and counseling website (www.BrettRichardsMFT.com), most psychotherapists and counselors collect a fee for an initial psychotherapy and counseling consultation. However, I choose not to, because I want you to have the benefit of consulting with me without payment in advance of starting counseling and psychotherapy with me.
During your initial counseling and psychotherapy consultation, you and I can discuss what you desire help with, including your issues and goals, and I will evaluate and describe to you the ways in which I think I can help you.
Through our easy, simple, and confidential initial counseling and psychotherapy consultation, my hope is that you will gain a clear understanding of how I am as a professional psychotherapist and counselor, and how through participating in my psychotherapy and counseling services with me, as psychotherapist and client, I can assist you in working toward creating a happier, more satisfying life.
When you are ready, I look forward to hearing from you via phone call or email, to hopefully welcoming you into my counseling and psychotherapy practice, and to helping you in therapy as your counselor and psychotherapist…
