What to Expect at Your First Appointment

First time clients will be scheduled for an intake appointment. Generally, we should be able to schedule your appointment within a week, and it will last around 30 minutes.  At your first appointment you will meet with the Counselor Coordinator to determine your needs and will set you up with the counselor that best meets your needs.    

You should arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment in order to fill out forms.

You will be given assessments to determine if you have any symptoms of concern such as depression or anxiety.  Then you will discuss with the counselor your results and your reason for seeking counseling.   Once your needs are determined you will be scheduled with your official counselor for individual therapy or referred to one of our groups.

Remember, you appointment is completely confidential.
