What to expect at the first session?
We will complete intake paperwork so please arrive a little early for your appointment. Sessions are one hour. We will identify the goals you would like to work on and go from there. Counseling is highly individualized however I may suggest the use of workbooks or make book recommendations to help give focus to the process (but not always). You will be informed of our policies regarding confidentiality and HIPAA. If there is a psychiatrist, nurse-practitioner, or family doctor you work with for medication I will ask permission to collaborate with them. You may accept or decline this.
