If you are a parent scheduling for a child under the age of 18 years of age, the first session will be with only a parent.
Your therapist will go over your child's background, history and current struggles. You will leave the parent session knowing exactly what it is we are working towards and how it will be accomplished.
Your therapist is able to test your child for anxiety and/or depression to see if this is a current issue. This creates a baseline for your therapist, we are able to see what type of anxiety they are struggling with and how severe it is. These test are helpful in showing whether or not therapy is working. We like to see results!
