WHAT TAKES PLACE AT AN INTAKE SESSION?
The initial session will be an initial assessment to discuss the patient’s history and needs for treatment. During this first session the patient will have the opportunity to see how therapy will work, review office policies, privacy and confidentiality, as well as determine whether or not they are comfortable with the therapist.
Side note: It’s vital to have a positive working relationship with your therapist, so it’s recommended that the patient and therapist will meet 2-3 times before deciding whether or not the relationship will continue. The therapist will provide patient with referrals of specialists or trusted colleagues if they feel someone else might better be able to work with the patient.
