What to Expect

At your first appointment, please check in at the front desk (in Vienna, this is on the 2nd floor of Building 127; in DC this is in Suite 310). We recommend printing and completing the below forms in advance, but if you are unable to, you may get them when you check in and fill them out in the waiting room.

Your therapist will greet you in the waiting room and escort you to a private therapy room. Together you will review the service agreement, confidentiality, contact information, and other forms, orienting you to the procedures at the Center and to the therapeutic process in general.

The intake assessment, which may take up to three sessions, is an opportunity for you and your therapist to get to know each other. You review current symptoms and presenting problems as well as pertinent historical information. From there, your therapist will be able to determine how best to proceed in treatment.
