The initial intake is an opportunity for myself to connect with parents without their child present. This is an important step in the therapeutic process, as it helps me gain a more thorough understanding of your child's development, challenges and family dynamics, and establishes the foundation for a treatment plan moving forward.
During the initial intake session, I will take the time to:
Explain important policies and procedures at The Mindful Maple;
discuss the counselling process and what it might look like for your child;
obtain a detailed intake assessment of your child's development, current functioning and presenting challenge(s) at home, in school, and out in the community;
explore specific counselling goals that you would like to see your child obtain;
introduce a prospective treatment plan to best meet your child's needs;
and, most importantly, answer any questions that you may have and clarify any uncertainties that you may be holding onto.
To arrange for an initial intake session, please reach out for a complimentary phone consultation. If you have already had a 30-minute consultation by phone and it has been determined that The Mindful Maple is a good fit for you and your child(ren), please contact me directly to schedule an intake appointment.
