What to Expect

YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

When scheduling your appointment, your therapist will answer any initial questions you have, and will send you our initial intake and consent forms if you wish to complete them ahead of time. We will also have copies available at the office should you wish to complete them there.

Your therapist will meet you in the lobby/waiting room, at your scheduled appointment time.  There are restrooms available in each suite. Please do not enter the therapy room if the door is shut and the sound machine is on.

Your first appointment will entail completing initial paperwork and consents, discussing confidentiality, and answering any questions you may have. We will also complete an assessment that will help us better understand your history, what brings you to therapy, and what you are hoping to gain from therapy.

If you plan to use insurance, please bring your insurance card for your therapist to make a copy. Otherwise, you do not need to bring or fill out anything prior to this appointment.

Your therapist will discuss treatment recommendations at the end of your first session, and will continue to discuss treatment needs, changes, progress, and recommendations throughout treatment. Please collaborate openly and honestly with your therapist in order for you both to create an appropriate plan of care.

When using the Prepare/Enrich assessment tool as a consultation process only (i.e. not engaging in therapy), you will need to contact on of our certified therapists (Erin or Jessica) and complete the assessment prior to your first appointment. At your initial appointment, your therapist will provide you with a Couples Report, and will review the results of your assessment. At the end of this appointment, you can collaborate with your therapist regarding follow up appointments, and discuss insurance options if therapy is recommended.
