Finding The Right Therapist For You

One of the primary goals of your consultation will be finding the right therapist for you. Whether you’re looking for a female therapist in NYC, an LGBTQ+ therapist, a therapist specializing in CBT therapy, or simply unsure who might best support you, we’re here to help! We’ll ask you questions about your goals, what’s been going on in your life, and get to know you a bit better. This will help us match you with one of our highly trained therapists who can best support you.

Set Mental Health Goals

Another goal of your consultation will be to begin setting some mental health goals. This may seem daunting, but our therapists are here to help guide you and make the process as easy as possible. We’ll ask you questions about the challenges that you’re facing that brought you in and what you hope to achieve through therapy. From there, we’ll work with you to set realistic and achievable goals.

Preparing For Your First Session

In addition to finding the right therapist and setting some goals, your consultation will also be a time to prepare for your first session. We’ll go over the logistics of therapy, what you can expect from your first session, and answer any questions that you may have. If you have further questions, contact us!

What To Expect From Your First Therapy Session

Your first session will be tailored to your specific needs and goals, but we want you to know what to expect in general. In your first session, you’ll have the opportunity to share anything that’s been going on in your life that’s been troubling you. This is a safe space for you to share whatever is on your mind, and our therapist will be there to listen and offer support. You’ll also begin to work on setting some goals for therapy and developing a plan to achieve them.
