What to expect during initial counseling session

What to expect during the initial counseling session:

During the initial counseling session, we will discuss general information related to the counseling relationship and process such as:

* Fees for counseling, scheduling appointments, cancellations, and payment policies and procedures.

* Confidentiality aspects of counseling and the circumstances under which something you say would not remain confidential (refer to the Registration Form/Informed Written Consent for Treatment for further explanations).

* Goals that will guide the counseling process and methods or techniques that will be used throughout the counseling process.

* A candid discussion about the counseling process and experience. The success of the counseling experience depends on you. You are most likely to reap benefits from counseling if you are motivated, honest, and willing to work at self-improvement and self-awareness.
