What can I expect at my first session?
Your initial counseling session focuses on collecting your history from a social, emotional, psychological, physical, interpersonal, and spiritual perspective. Based on this information, together we will formulate YOUR goals for counseling. Subsequent sessions will include discussion of your experience in conjunction with what continues to upset you.
What if I decide that marriage therapy isn't for me?
Initially, marriage therapy may feel uncomfortable for some. Therefore, we encourage everyone to try more than one session. You are in charge, and you decide if you wish to continue.
We only ask that you give at least 24 hours notice by phone when canceling an appointment.
What if I get there and I don't know what to say?
This is a common concern and your counselor is trained to assist you in getting started by asking questions that open up the conversation. Most people are very hesitant and nervous when first meeting with a therapist.
