I believe the biggest barrier in individuals receiving care is the difficulty in knowing where to start when looking for a mental health provider, and the long waitlist during this time which does not allow for an individual to receive help in a timely manner.
When working with my I want the individual I am assisting to understand that I am here to meet them where they are, and provide them with information and guidance in regards to their needs.
A first session with me looks like a get to know you conversation. I like to explain the counseling, learn if you have been in counseling before, and answer any questions you may have. I also inquire on what it is that brought you to counseling and review the concerns I have read from any intake paperwork. This session helps me gain an understanding of what your needs may be, and allows for the beginning of treatment goals to be established.
