WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT
It is perfectly natural to be nervous about meeting with a counselor for the first time. Hopefully, knowing what to expect will make the process a little easier.
Here's what to Expect:
The number one objective of the first session is to establish a therapeutic relationship. The effectiveness of therapy is largely dependent on having a safe and comfortable relationship with your counselor.
The second objective is to begin gathering information about why you are seeking services as well as some general background information. You should not feel pressured to discuss deeply personal topics during the first visit. It is my hope to provide a safe environment that allows for a natural and effective therapeutic experience.
Finally, there are a few short forms that will need to be completed or you can request to have the forms emailed to you ahead of time by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
