What can I expect from the first therapy session?
Please arrive for your first session 15 minutes before your appointment time. You will find paperwork to be completed on the coffee table in the waiting area. There is water, coffee and tea available, help yourself. Rona will come out to greet you at your scheduled appointment time.
The first part of this first session will be spent talking about how the process works, as well as answering any questions you might have. The bulk of the session will be spent talking about what brings you to therapy as you begin to discuss your goals for success. The final part of the session will focus on "what next". If Rona feels she can be helpful and you feel she is a good fit for you, together you will set the next appointment. She may also discuss with you what other steps may be available to you to help you reach your goals.
Appointment times are be reserved specifically for you. If you must cancel an appointment, please notify Rona in advance by calling her confidential voice mail at 703-437-7600. If you cancel 24 hours before the scheduled appointment, you will not be charged. If you do not show up for an appointment or cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged the full appointment fee.
