WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE 1ST THERAPY SESSION?
In your first session, I will spend some time getting to know you and the issues that brought you into treatment. You may use a formal, structured interview, or it may just feel like a more free-flowing conversation. I will ask questions about your presenting concerns, as well as your history and background. Most likely, you’ll find yourself talking about your current symptoms or struggles, as well saying a bit about your relationships, your interests, your strengths, and your goals.
Most importantly, in the first session, you will begin making a connection with your therapist. You should feel safe, accepted, respected, and relatively comfortable. Not all therapists are right for every person, so use your first session to assess whether or not the therapist you chose feels like a good match for your personality.
