Preparing for your first visit!
It feels good to be prepared.
On your First Appointment:
We will gather information to understand your needs and the reason you schedule an appointment.
- Be open and honest, but feel free to share what you are comfortable with at the time.
- Come to sessions with a general idea of what you want to address in therapy.
- It’s okay to ask questions.
- Assert your own opinions and let your counselor know when you disagree. You are the expert of your own life.
Some general questions to ask:
- Has the counselor worked with people who have similar problems or goals as yourself?
- How will you and your counselor work together to confront your issue and set goals?
- How much education and professional experience do you have?
- How often will the two of you meet?
- What kind of process does the professional use and what kind of improvements can you expect?
What had changed since the pandemic?
- All service changes remote working. We are seeing clients using telehealth.
- We sanitize our office regularly to keep our staff and community safe.
- We prescribe your medication electronically and save you a trip to our office.
- We provide virtual workshops, so you and other community members continue receiving community resources and wellness education.
