Call the office at (208) 366-1601 and our front desk staff will help you get started. Please let us know if there is a specific provider you would like to see. If you don't have a specific provider in mind, we will help match you with someone who's approach and experience will best help you meet your goals for therapy.
Complete intake paperwork. Prior to your first scheduled appointment you will need to read through, and complete paperwork. Our front desk staff will provide you with instructions on how to do this. Please read through all of the paperwork carefully as it will familiarize you with your provider's practice policies. Additionally, it will help your provider get a better understanding of what you are seeking help for.
Attend your first session. That's it! You've made it. During your first session you can expect to be treated with compassion, respect, and understanding. Your provider will review your paperwork, and talk about what brings you to counseling. It is important that this first meeting is as comfortable as possible for you, so you are encouraged to share at your comfort level. This is also a good time for you to get a better sense of your provider and whether they feel like a good fit for you. At the end of the session, your provider will summarize your focus and goals for counseling as well as talk about how you might work together to meet those goals.
WHAT ABOUT FUTURE SESSIONS?
You and your provider can talk about what will work best for you in terms of future session. Typically, you will meet once a week at the beginning of counseling for a 55-60 minute session. Meeting weekly gives you just the right amount of time between sessions to feel like you've made some progress toward your goals while getting the support you need for change.
