Q: What can I expect at my first appointment?

A: At your first appointment, we will talk about the reasons you are seeking therapy and what you hope to get out of it. This is done in a relaxed and conversational manner. You will be listened to and treated with care and respect. You will not be judged; healing takes place through self- knowledge, understanding, acceptance, and care. Your counseling experience will reflect these values.

What are the characteristics of a good therapist?

In general, a good therapist:

Begins the sessions on time (it’s discourteous to keep you waiting, and the very least you should expect is common courtesy).

Listens more than they speak.

Makes you feel understood, respected and hopeful.

Avoids self-disclosure; they don’t talk about themselves. Why? It allows you to feel free to express your own views and opinions; you won't feel constrained by the therapist's views and opinions. Also, because it is your time; it is about you not the therapist.

When you have your first session with a therapist, consider these guidelines and pay attention to how you feel. Many people second-guess their feelings and instincts about a therapist (because the therapist is the “expert”). This is a mistake. They are not an expert on you.

A good therapist will not be offended if you choose to “think about it” rather than scheduling another appointment.
