I Have Scheduled My First Appointment…Now What?

Is this your first time visiting us at Creative Family Counseling?

Welcome! We find it a privilege to walk alongside clients as they work through challenges. Thank you for choosing to spend that time with us!

If you’re a planner like me, this little article may be helpful to help you prepare for your first session with your Therapist.

Our Intake Coordinator Team schedules your intake with a well-matched Clinician on our Team of expert Therapists.
Once you schedule your first appointment with your Therapist, you will receive an email which includes a password to complete your Intake Questionnaire and sign the Consents and Agreements to counseling at our practice. These must be completed prior to coming for your first appointment. If you do not see this email within a few minutes of scheduling your first appointment, please give us a call back and we can check our spelling on our end or try to resend the paperwork. Please complete this paperwork electronically prior to your visit so your Therapist can review it with you during your scheduled appointment time. Should you arrive for your appointment and this paperwork not be complete, your Therapist will utilize your reserved Intake appointment time for the completion of this paperwork. Learn More...

What to Expect: The Next Steps for Your Appointment at Creative Family Counseling After You Submit a Contact Request

Is this your first time visiting us at Creative Family Counseling?

Welcome! We find it a privilege to walk alongside clients as they work through challenges. Thank you for choosing to spend that time with us!

If you’re a planner like me, this little article may be helpful to help you prepare for your first session with your Therapist.

To schedule an appointment, you’ve got three options:

  1.  Browse our website and submit a Contact Submission, selecting the Campus you’d like to go to for your appointments and the primary concern you want to address by selecting the appropriate dropdown menu item. A member of our team will follow up with you within 48 business hours. 
  2. Call our Intake Line and speak to one of our Intake Coordinators to determine which member of our team will best fit your preferred areas of focus based on their expertise and availability. The Intake Coordinator can help you narrow down what you want to work on and make recommendations to which of our team members would be the best fit for you.  They can then set up the appointment for you over the phone.
  3. If there is a particular Therapist with whom you’d like to work, you may reach out directly to them by phone or email.  Each clinician’s contact information is available on their Bio Pages. 

To schedule the appointment, the Intake Coordinator will need the client’s name, phone number, and email address.  For those seeking Couple’s Therapy, they will need the name and contact information for both partners.  For clients who are minors, they will also need each Legal Guardian’s names, phone numbers, and email addresses.  For minors for whom a custody plan has been established, we request both Legal Guardian’s contact information and ask that the most recent Judge-signed custody paperwork be uploaded to the child’s client portal for our review prior to their first appointment.  Learn More...
