During the initial diagnostic evaluation session a history will be taken and preliminary goal setting will be accomplished. Treatment practices, philosophy, provisional plan as well as limitations and risks will be discussed. Recommendations in terms of frequency of appointments, other possible therapies and a provisional diagnosis will be given. Based on mutual consent, individual counseling will begin. Not only does the client need a competent counselor, but the client needs to feel comfortable with the counselor and preliminary recommendations.
