The first session is called the initial assessment and will last for approximately 1 hr. and 30 minutes. This time will be dedicated to assessing your individual situation. At the end of the assessment, you and your therapist will develop a treatment plan to best meet your needs. This plan will often include homework, which is a key component to successful counseling. During this time you are entitled to receive information about the methods of therapy, the techniques used, the duration of therapy, and the fee structure. Furthermore, you may request a referral, seek a second opinion from another therapist, refuse specific services, or terminate therapy at any time. We do request, however, that you discuss terminating therapy with your therapist before doing so.
