Our first appointment will be a 50-minute intake. During this appointment I will ask you questions about what is bringing you into therapy at this time, as well as your relationship/family history, past treatment history, career/educational history, and therapy goals. The purpose of this intake is both for me to better understand how I can be helpful to you, as well as for you to get a sense of my therapeutic style.
I will also use the intake appointment to determine whether I can provide you with the appropriate treatment at this time. If it appears that you would benefit from treatment beyond the scope of what I can offer, I will work with you to ensure you are provided with referrals to the appropriate clinicians.
