Make Your First Appointment

Step Three

Attend Your First Appointment


It’s normal to feel anxious before your first appointment. You are in good hands with our expert counselors. Here’s what you can expect at your first appointment:

  • Your counselor will introduce themselves, go over your forms, and get to know more about you and why you are there.
  • Your counselor will ask questions to gain an understanding of your background, current mental state, and issues impacting your quality of life. The more open and honest you can be, the better.
  • Together with your counselor, you will establish a list of goals that you both agree would be beneficial to address the issues you are experiencing.

Step Four

Schedule Your Next Appointment

Ongoing appointments are necessary to continue addressing issues as they come up, monitoring your progress on goals you’ve set with your counselor, and more.

Talk to your counselor about the best session schedule for your needs. Whether you’d like to come in twice a week, monthly, as-needed, or develop a custom schedule, our staff can work to set you up with a routine you can feel good about.
