FAQ – What should we expect at our first session?
You will meet with Ellie in a private setting. She may have you and your child meet with her together for a portion or all of the session. She will often meet with the child alone for a portion of the assessment. Please plan on spending an hour on your first visit, which will include the time to complete initial paperwork and consent forms. Be prepared to talk about what has prompted you, your child or family to seek treatment. Assessments frequently are completed in the first session. However, there are occasional situations where additional information is needed to complete a thorough assessment. If treatment is recommended, initial goals for treatment will be discussed in order to establish a working understanding of the treatment focus.
