I will ask you to tell me what is going on that made you decide to enter therapy. You will have the opportunity to ask me questions, i.e., about me, my experiences, and about the therapeutic process. I may ask you to go home with an assignment to try something different or try to think of things in a different way. We will end the session having decided whether or not you wish to continue, and if you do, we will make another appointment.
Many people are nervous during their first session with a therapist, especially if it’s the first time they are entering therapy. This is perfectly normal and is to be expected. We will discuss as much or as little as makes you comfortable.
