To an outsider, or at first glance, it may appear the first session is a casual conversation. Essentially, that’s what it is. The therapist gets to know you, asks background questions, and starts the journey. What is your story? What are you goals? What changes do you want to make? (If you don’t know the answer to these questions that is okay, too.)
Another important aspect of the first session is deciding if you feel the therapist is a good fit for you.
