Initial Intake

Initial Intake

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.
