What You Can Expect
Before your first session
We are so appreciative that you have chosen us to be part of your journey to a more fulfilling life. We want to make your experience with us as easy as possible so that you can focus on what really matters. Before you arrive, our office management team will confirm with you the date, time and location of your appointment. You will be requested to do some initial paperwork. You may download your initial paperwork (click here) and fill it out prior to coming to the office. If you’d prefer to fill it out in our office, please arrive 15-20 minutes early.
Make Yourself Comfortable
It’s a good idea to plan to arrive a few minutes early for your appointment to complete forms if you haven’t already done so. When you enter our offices, make yourself comfortable while you wait for your therapist. Your therapist will greet you and invite you in to your office. We are one of only a few therapy offices to offer the following as standard amenities with our service:
- Hot Tea and Coffee (In waiting area)
- Calls returned within 24 hours during the week
- Free guest wifi
- Self-help lending library
If you are new to therapy, nerves are normal. But don’t worry, we are committed to making this a safe environment.
You will join your therapist in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. Basically, our first session is about getting to know one another so that we can help you as quickly as possible. You may be asked some questions. Some are to gather information necessary so that your health insurance will cover your treatment. Other questions will be related to what you need us to know about you and what is happening in your life. We will use this information to guide our sessions.
You may ask us anything. We will answer any questions you may have about us, our experience and what you can expect in future appointments. We want you to feel comfortable.
Therapy sessions are typically 50 minutes. However, some families and couples benefit from being treated for 75 minutes.
Choosing the Right Therapist
It’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist. If you didn’t make a connection or aren’t comfortable for any reason, please let us try again. We know we have the right therapist for you. Don’t give up on therapy just because you didn’t quite fit with your first therapist. Let us help match you.
