Frequently Asked Questions
What to expect on your first visit.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork and to allow time for staff to make copies of insurance cards and a photo identification card.
If you have specific issues you wish to address immediately with your therapist, you may do this in your first session. Couples seeking joint counseling may wish to come with a brief list of concerns or a common goal that you have set for yourselves. If you are a bit unclear on your goals, your therapist will take some background information and ask you questions regarding symptoms you may be experiencing.
If you are taking medications of any kind, please have a list of them handy, as this information is sometimes important in identifying treatment needs and interventions.
If you are required to participate in counseling by any supervising authority and wish us to report back to that supervisor, please be prepared with contact information so that an Authorization for Release of Confidential Information may be completed prior to communication between your therapist and the supervisor.
