Your Visit

Our goal is to create an atmosphere that is safe and welcoming for you and your family. Here are a few things you can expect on your first visit:

For those who require a more private/discreet experience, please mention this when we schedule your appointment and arrangements will be made to meet your specific needs.

To best understand how to help you, your therapist will ask you for some initial information to collaborate and create an individualized plan of care. Some of the questions might include:

  • What problem or concern would you like to address today?
  • How is this affecting you emotionally and physically?
  • How is this affecting your relationships at home, at work and/or in your community.
  • Is there any information about your past that we may need to know?
  • How long has this problem or concern been affecting you?
  • Have you been in counseling before?
  • How would you know when this problem or concern is gone?

We want you to know that your ideas and input are very important to the success of the therapeutic process. We believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation of healing.

Information about your specific care can ease your discomfort about the process. Feel free to ask questions about the types of strategies or techniques the counselor may use with you.

The estimated length of therapy is individualized, so please express your hopes and your fears about your plan. We are here for you.
