What happens at the first therapy session 

I usually start an initial session off by greeting a new client, asking about their day and making small talk.  It is important for my clients to feel like they are easing their way in to a conversation with a stranger about important topics. 
I will ask about additional things related to relationships, career and current life events. The reason for this is that I consider our first session an “evaluation”, meaning we get a 360 degree view of your life and your goals.
We will talk about a plan moving forward. This discussion usually involves setting a few general goals for our work together and talking about how frequently we will meet.
