We’ve put together some notes and suggestions to help you prepare for your first appointment and get the most out of therapy.
Preparing For the First Appointment:
When you meet your therapist for the first time it is easy to get confused or forget important information. Writing a few notes to take with you can help. These might include:
- Bring a list of all medicines you are taking for both physical and behavioral health reasons. Include name, dose, frequency, and any side effects you are experiencing. Bring along contact information for all doctors who are giving you medicine.
- Bring copies of any documents you think might be helpful. These include previous psychological testing, hospital discharge summaries, or recent laboratory results. If you are bringing your child in for therapy, then bring copies of recent school progress reports and psychological testing results.
- Bring your identification, insurance card and any source of payment
