As someone that is seeking someone to walk alongside you while you try to find peace and wholeness, we are glad that you are looking at Seeking Shalom as a place where you may find this. Especially if you have never been involved with counseling or therapy, this can be a little unsettling as you are venturing onto new ground. Please feel free to review the "What to Expect" page for some basic information about how the process works.
If while you are considering your options, we would be more than willing to talk to you and answer any questions that you have. If you need to get a hold of us, please call us through our answering service at (800)436-0242 or by calling the office at (212)655-9605. When you are ready to take the next important step, you may call us for an appointment, or schedule yourself for an Initial Session using the Book an Initial Appointment link on the right hand side. Be aware that when you make an appointment, we will be setting aside the time to be able to get to know you and to work out how we can move forward together.
Either before or after you make an appointment, please review the information that is listed under Client Information and Privacy Policies. Before your initial appointment, please also complete the Intake Form (link is on the right) so that that information will be available as we work out with you what will be best for you. You are also welcome to complete the Assessment Form, although this is a longer and more comprehensive part of the assessment. The Assessment Form is not needed for the first session. All of these resources are in the Secure Client Area electronically, and it is preferred that you complete them there as this will be most helpful as you continue to work with us.
We are glad that you have decided to take this important step. We look forward to walking on this journey with you as you move to peace and wholeness.
