Initial session is primarily information gathering and gaining insight into why client is seeking therapy at this time and what their goals are. I also give them a brief introduction of myself, my practice and my therapeutic approach. I utilize the initial sessions to build rapport and trust with clients. I empower the client to be proactive & ask questions if they have never been in therapy before and if they have been in previous therapy, discovering what approaches worked best for them.
I emphasize that they guide their recovery process and I'm here to help steer them in the direction they want to go with ultimate goal being healing and restoration
