During the consultation session you meet with your prospective therapist via online/telehealth/video. The therapist will obtain information regarding your current symptoms, behaviors, challenges, functioning, and your goals for treatment. The therapist discusses the treatment process, duration, and how your treatment will be individually tailored to your specific symptoms, challenges, and needs.
During the consultation you will be able to share your thoughts and questions about the treatment process, and speak with your prospective therapist to decide if you think your therapist will be a “good fit,” for you to have ongoing therapy services.
At the end of the consultation session you can inform the therapist if you would like to proceed with treatment, or contact the therapist after the consultation session, to provide that information. If you would like to move forward with therapy then you and the therapist can schedule the date and time of the initial assessment session.
