What Can I Expect During the First Counseling Appointment?

During your first meeting with the counselor, you will be asked to describe your concerns and what you hope to gain from counseling. Your counselor may ask a number of background questions to more fully understand your situation and ways to help you. This is an opportunity for you and the counselor to decide whether Counseling Services is the best place for you to help yourself. After this meeting, you may decide to continue counseling and schedule follow-up appointments.
