Your very first session with SLC will be an intake session. This is a bit longer than the regular session hour as it involves gathering information. You can expect your counselor to ask questions related to the following topics: presenting problem, symptoms you are experiencing, your personal mental health history, your families' mental health history, trauma history (as much as you feel comfortable sharing at this time), substance use history, education, work, and more. In this intake session your counselor will also go over with you any initial questionnaires as well as scoring results for them that they may have had you fill out prior to the first session (via email). If there is any information you do not feel comfortable to discuss at the first session please feel free to indicate this during the assessment. The purpose of the assessment is for the counselor to gain enough information to determine if you qualify for a diagnosis. In addition, assessment information is how your counselor will begin a treatment plan for your work together, reflecting your personal goals and ways the counselor plans to address them/help.
