What I Usually Need to Know to Help

Once you have scheduled your appointment from the Tempest Counseling website, you will receive an email with a link to your client portal. In that portal is an intake questionnaire for our first session together. Please take the time to complete it with as much detail as possible. This will help me to identify the core challenges we need to address in therapy, and will allow us to make the most use of our time together.
