Your First Therapy Appointment
Once you have completed the Intake appointment, you will be assigned a therapist. Your first Therapy appointment will be scheduled at that time. Typically, clients meet with their Graduate Student Clinicians on a weekly basis. Therapies can last from brief (up to 15 sessions) to long term. Therapy is individualized to a client's needs, and therefore your clinician will discuss this with you when you meet with them. Remember that all Graduate Student Clinicians are supervised by licensed Clinical Psychologists.
Therapy appointments are typically about 45 to 50 minutes long. It is our policy to not run over the scheduled time. Therefore, if your session starts late, it will still need to finish at the time originally scheduled. Our rooms get busy, and our clinicians have other clients and tasks on their schedules.
Please make sure that you plan enough time to find parking, walk to your appointment, or tend to your personal needs so that you can arrive on time for your appointment. This will ensure the best service possible.
An appointment will be considered a no-show if you have not arrived by 15 minutes after your scheduled start time and we have not heard from you. If you know that you will be late, or need to reschedule, please give us a courtesy call at 701.777.3691 prior to your appointment start time. The sooner we know, the sooner we can meet your needs.
