"For many people, an initial consultation to determine whether or not a particular health care provider is likely to be a good fit for them can be an important step in their journey towards improved health and well-being. Consequently, I suggest you consider your initial appointment to be a time for us to meet and decide if it makes sense for us to work together. These appointments are usually 30 to 50 minutes in length and involve a conversation about what you are looking for, an opportunity for you to ask me any questions you might have about my work, and if you would like, any suggestions I might have to help you find the best fit for your needs.
If we both feel we are a good fit, we will decide together on our next step, usually either scheduling an appointment for a first session or an initial assessment. (Initial assessments are designed to help us in your treatment planning.) Both my experience, and continued careful reviews of the research literature in my field, have convinced me that successful outcomes are dependent on our developing a good working relationship, on my learning enough about you to be able to make good treatment planning recommendations to you, and on your participation."
