Before Your First Visit
What should I expect?
Expect your first appointment to be much more easy, comfortable and relaxing than anticipated. Our counselors are experts at helping their clients feel comfortable from the very first session. Expect to be asked the question, “What brings you in for your visit today?” by a professional listener whose job it is to care. Expect to talk about goals and to collaboratively develop a plan to achieve those goals.
What time should I arrive?
We schedule our appointments so we don’t have clients accidentally bumping into one another at our offices. We don’t have waiting rooms. Your counselor will greet you in the Pinnacle Counseling reception area and escort you to the counseling office. There is no need to arrive at your first appointment early.
Please download and print your intake paperwork from resources menu. You may fill it out and bring it with you to the first appointment. If you can’t, don’t worry, it’s not a problem. Your counselor will have copies for you to fill out at the office if you need them.
Our time together
We don’t schedule back-to-back appointments at Pinnacle Counseling. This allows our counselors a little time to relax and reset between appointments. More importantly, it allows our clients to feel unhurried in the therapeutic process. You will never be rushed out of an appointment because someone else it waiting to get in.
