Congratulations on taking the step into therapy! While counseling can be rich with rewards, there are certainly some risks involved, such as allowing yourself to become vulnerable, experiencing a heightened sense of anxiety before symptoms get better, and even being faced with uncomfortable changes you may have to make to better your situation. Remember, your wellness and mental health are the top priorities of counseling. To ensure this experience in the most professional, ethical, and effective manner, please take time prior to your first visit to print and complete the appropriate forms. Bring them with you to your intake session, or you may scan and email the completed forms to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If printing is an issue for you, forms will be provided for you upon your arrival. In this case, new clients must attend 20 minutes early to the first session to fill out forms. Any questions you have about the forms will be happily addressed in session. I am so glad you have chosen Bayou Wellness to serve you. Now, let's get started.
