What to Expect
Psychological services, like most forms of treatment, can have risks and benefits. Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, the risks include the potential for experiencing uncomfortable feelings. However, the benefits are that therapy can help you develop healthy coping strategies, find solutions to specific problems, improve relationships, and reduce feelings of distress. There are no guarantees as to what you will experience, but coming in is the first step towards helping yourself or your child.
After you submit the new client form, the submitted information will be reviewed by the psychologists at The Center For Psychology to determine the best fit. You will then be contacted by our office staff to schedule your Intake. The "Intake" is a 45 minute long clinical assessment and is designed to obtain background information and to identify treatment needs and goals.
Your therapist will offer ideas about their general approach to treatment. Since an important ingredient in a successful treatment is the relationship with the therapist, you should evaluate how comfortable you feel and whether you are ready to make a commitment to treatment. Please do not hesitate to ask questions and know that you may decline any part of your treatment, request another therapist, or seek treatment elsewhere.
If the appointment is for your child, it is necessary for the parent or legal guardian to attend. At The Center For Psychology, we believe that you deserve the best quality care. For that reason, you will meet directly with the treating psychologist every time you attend an appointment. At the end of the clinical assessment, you and your psychologist will discuss future appointments and treatment options.
