Congratulations on your decision to start psychotherapy.

The first thing is to call LPA’s Practice Manager, Danielle, to schedule an appointment, 855-583-2842, ext. 0. Danielle will ask about your insurance, preferences, and schedule.

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 assessments 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.
