What to Expect at your First Appointment
The first appointment is simply a time for us to get to know each other. There will be paperwork for you to fill out in the waiting room when you get here. We do not have a person to greet you as you arrive, so please take this time to relax, get a coffee, fill out your paperwork, etc. You will want to arrive about fifteen minutes early to do this.
At our scheduled appointment time, I will come out to meet you and take you to my office. This will begin our fifty-minute session. During this time, I will be asking questions that allow me to better understand your situation/history. The purpose of the first session is to evaluate if I can help you in the way you would like/need and to ensure you feel comfortable working with me. We may do more information gathering, writing/form completion, etc than in future sessions.
