What to Expect in Counseling



The first session for all clients is referred to as the intake interview and lasts approximately two hours. During that time, you will fill out and discuss several forms with your counselor, who will then ask about your concerns and the problems that have brought you to the counseling session. Please note that the intake counselor may not be the same counselor who will work with you in following sessions.


All counseling sessions following the initial intake interview last about 50 minutes to one hour. These sessions will generally be less structured than intake interview. Generally, clients are seen on a weekly basis.



All information shared in counseling sessions will be kept confidential. Only in certain circumstances will confidential information need to be disclosed. These situations will be discussed with all clients during the intake interview.


Cancelation Policy

Please contact the clinic at least 24 hours in advance if you are unable to attend your counseling session. No-shows will be charged for the counseling session and incur an additional $10 fee.
