What is the benefit of phone consultation?
Before you decide to schedule your first session, we are happy to provide a free phone consultation to answer any questions you may have about the general counseling process and services offered. This helps you determine if one of our counselors will be a good fit for you. Please feel free to contact us HERE, or by calling (334) 521-8302.
Will I need to complete any paperwork before my first session?
Yes. After your first appointment is scheduled, you will receive an email invitation to join the secure client portal, where you will review the Informed Consent and Notice of Privacy Practices, as well as complete the Client Intake Form. This helps your counselor get to know you a little bit before your first session, which ensures that the time you’re paying for is used in the most efficient way possible.
What happens during the first session?
During your first session, you and your counselor will review important details about the counseling process and your rights as a client. This will be a time for your counselor to get a deeper understanding of what brought you to counseling and what you’re hoping to get out of the experience.
Will I have to explain my past in detail?
Sometimes just the idea of uncovering difficult, perhaps traumatic, events of your past is enough to make you want to run and hide. From the beginning, we want you to know that you have control over what you share and what you do not share with your counselor. We do believe understanding how the past is impacting your present is key, however, you have the power to determine the pace and depth we go about this. Above all, we want you to know that when you come to counseling, you are in a safe, judgment-free zone.
