What to expect:
When calling to schedule an initial appointment, you will be asked to provide general information over the phone about your current concerns and about the services you are seeking. At your first visit, you will be asked to complete paperwork, fill out questionnaires about symptoms you may be experiencing, and meet with one of our clinicians to complete an intake assessment. The goal of the intake assessment is to identify specific areas of concern and to discuss treatment options or further evaluation.
Once you are assigned to a therapist, you will discuss your goals for the evaluation or treatment, and you will be expected to attend appointments at a frequency recommended by your therapist. Clients involved in therapy are typically expected to work on skills outside of the therapy session (i.e., short “homework” assignments). Our empirically-based therapeutic approaches are short-term and collaborative in nature – the therapist and client work together on treatment planning and monitoring progress.
