Welcome to Resonate Wellness! I want to thank you for trusting me in taking this step of your journey towards wellness. If you haven’t already scheduled an appointment, that would be Step 1. Please call (604) 614 – 7177 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set up your Initial Intake Assessment for a day and time that works for you. This first meeting will establish your goals for therapy and the direction that we take to achieve them.
As previously mentioned, the match between client and counsellor is a significant predictor of therapeutic outcomes. During this first session we will likely get a good sense of whether I will be a good fit for you. If we determine that the fit is not quite right, we can work together to find a therapist who will better suit your needs.
The Initial Intake Assessment for Couples Therapy is similar: the first meeting will be the three of us discussing the issues impacting the relationship and the goals for therapy. Soon after, I will schedule separate individual meetings with each of you to better understand how your strengths and vulnerabilities may be both enhancing and challenging the relationship. The final step of this initial process is to come back together as a whole and discuss the findings and clarify our way forward.
