Nervous or anxious about your first appointment? Been there!
At Options in Psychology, LLC our goal is to make you feel as comfortable and safe as possible. When you first arrive at our office you will enter through our front doors that lead into our waiting area. Upon entering the waiting room please make your way to the front desk windows and inform our office staff of your Name, appointment time, and who you are here to see if you remember (if you don't it's okay we've got a schedule for reference!). If you picked up paperwork prior to your appointment and have it completed then please hand this and your insurance card to our front office staff. If you have not picked up your paperwork prior to your appointment please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the necessary paperwork. Once the paperwork is collected our front office staff will ask you to sit in our waiting area as they hand the paperwork off to your provider. Once the provider as reviewed your paperwork they will greet you in the waiting room and have you follow them back to their office. If the appointment is for a child then they will need to be accompanied by an adult during the first session to collect necessary information for not only insurance but the treatment plan.
Each provider has a different way of conducting their first session but generally our providers will review the intake paperwork, go out the therapy process, and answer any questions that you have.
You've taken the first step towards making a change in your life and it's normal to be nervous or anxious. If there is anything we can do to help make this process from stress free please lets know.
