What to Expect from Counseling
Whether you are new to therapy or you have seen several counselors, you may wonder what to expect from MK Counseling sessions with Melissa. Taking the first step towards therapy can seem scary, which is why I offer a free phone consultation. If after a free phone consultation, we both decide we'll be a good fit, we'll schedule our first session.
First Session: We will review and complete the needed paperwork, discuss confidentiality, and begin to explore current and historical symptoms of your presenting concern whether that is concern with self worth, disordered eating, or relationships.
Second Session: The focus of the second session will be to gather more information about your reasons for seeking counseling and begin to identify potential areas of strength and improvement.
Third Session and on: During these sessions the focus of therapy will be identified. Subsequent sessions will begin focusing on meeting your treatment goals, identifying new goals, or modifying old goals.
