The main focus of your first therapy session:
1. Understand of your circumstances you are facing
Our therapist will take the first meeting to better understand your current circumstances. Additionally, understanding specific areas that are unique to you and the adversities you are facing must be identified. After that, the point we are able to determine what type of therapy is right for you. In addition, this needs to match up with your day-to-day life to find success. Additionally, actions may need to be done outside of our therapy sessions as these are all important steps in your healing. In other words, taking an active role in practicing certain techniques, reviewing articles, and/or reading a specific book may be asked of you. This is for your success.
2. Build A Relationship of Trust with your therapist
Think of the first session as more like a two-way interview. We will get to know each other and make sure each of us is the right fit. Additionally will ask you questions to help me better and more completely understand your primary issues or concerns. Additionally, historic events in your childhood, family, life, and career. Secondly, you are equally welcome to ask questions too. Above all, support and honesty are imperative as we both establish a client/therapist relationship.

Is Therapy Confidential? You’re protected under HIPAA.
As a general rule, all therapy sessions are confidential. Therefore, anything you discuss with your therapist will remain between the two of you, unless you request otherwise. This is as per protection rules by law (HIPAA), which all therapists legally need to follow. No information from the session can be disclosed without prior consent from the client in written form.
There are exceptions to this law, however. A therapist can disclose information from the session to legal authorities or appointed persons if any of the following are true:
- The therapist suspects abuse to a child, dependent adult, or an elder, or is made aware of domestic abuse. These situations all require the therapist to notify law authorities immediately.
- If the therapist suspects an individual has caused or is threatening to cause severe bodily harm to another person, therapists are required to report it to the police.
- If an individual intends to harm himself or herself, expressing to the therapist, for example, plans for suicide. While the therapist will attempt to work through this in the therapy session if it appears to be unresolved or the client does not cooperate, additional action may need to be taken to ensure the safety of the client.
There comes a time in all of our lives that we have to FACE what is before us. The first step is achieved when you REFUSE to be a captive of the environment in which you find yourself. The next is EMBRACE change. The final step is to EMPOWER yourself and overcome the adversity at hand.
