Getting Started

My work is about my life,
and what I want to do with it.

Congratulations on your decision to start psychotherapy.

The first thing is to call 855-583-2842 and schedule an appointment with LPA’s Practice Manager. Eileen will help you sign in to the online client portal and ask you to complete your intake forms there.  

What can I expect in the first session?

Your therapist will greet you and go over privacy practices and confidentiality that are important in therapy. They will ask why you have come to therapy. They may ask you to complete assessment tools and to answer questions about your challenges and circumstances. At the initial session, you will begin to form a relationship with your therapist, ask any questions you have, and start to focus together on what you would like to achieve through therapy.

Best wishes to you as you begin!
