The initial consultation is an introductory session that is approximately 45 minutes. In this first session, the primary goals are completing and reviewing the intake packet, discussing what is bringing you to therapy at this time and what you are rights are. My primary interest is understanding what is important to you, what supports you need in this moment, what your strengths are and what your hopes are for therapy. The initial appointment is also an opportunity to assess whether the therapeutic fit meets your needs, where you are able to ask questions about the therapy process and my orientation to therapy because finding a therapist who can connect with therapeutically is of upmost importance.
