The first appointment is an opportunity for your provider to get to know you and your concerns.

She will ask questions that help her understand your strengths, challenges, and goals.  She will assess for specific mental health diagnoses along with social concerns.

This is an interactive conversation where both patient and provider begin developing a degree of comfort with one another. 

Our goal is that you walk out of this first appointment feeling like your provider understands your concerns, has the expertise to help you toward your goals, and offers hope for change.
