Currently Accepting New Clients

Thank you for considering R.E.A.L. Therapy for your counseling or coaching needs.

Dr. Buckingham  speaks with new clients by appointment only. New clients are accepted only after an initial FREE 15-minute phone consultation. This allows you an opportunity to speak with Dr. Buckingham to ask questions while giving him an opportunity to discuss your needs and goals.

The purpose of the initial 15 minute consultations is to allow you and Dr. Buckingham to determine if you and him are a good fit for each other. Dr. Buckingham will answer questions about the counseling process and schedule of fees. 

**Please keep in mind that the initial consultation is time limited because Dr. Buckingham has back-to-back consultations.
