The evaluation appointment is a longer appointment that is used to gather information about you, the reasons you are seeking therapy services, and your goals. We will also complete forms and scales during this appointment.
There will be either one or two evaluation appointments, depending on the client's age. Clients under the age of 18 may have two evaluation appointments, one with the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the provider, and the other with the child or teen and the provider. Clients that are 18 and over will only have one evaluation appointment between the client and provider.
At the end of the evaluation appointment, we will confirm that you want to continue services with me as your provider. If after the evaluation it is discovered that my services are not the right fit for you, I will help direct you on how to obtain more appropriate services for you needs.
