Free 15-Minute Phone Consultation
A free 15-minute phone consultation will be conducted by one of our skilled Intake Coordinators to gather some basic information about you or your child and gain an understanding of your reason for seeking therapy. Based on the information provided, the Intake Coordinator will work with you to determine which therapist would be the right fit for you and your child. With Wellspring’s therapists having diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, we are able to find a match that will best fit you and your child’s needs. The Intake Coordinator will also use this time to provide additional information on Wellspring and schedule an initial intake consultation.
Initial intake consultation and assessment period
Wellspring therapists typically use the first couple of sessions as an assessment period to gather as much information as possible in order to develop a good understanding of the problem and create a firm treatment plan moving forward.
If you are a parent looking for therapy for your child, the Intake Coordinator will schedule you as the parents for the first intake meeting. This provides an opportunity for the therapist to gather thorough background and history on your child and establish an initial relationship with you. Two meetings can be set for parents that prefer to meet separately.
Teen clients sometimes prefer to attend the first intake meeting by themselves. Our Intake Coordinators can work with you to determine what works best for your family.
Therapy sessions are typically 50-minutes in length. Family or couple’s sessions may be longer. Sessions typically occur weekly, but your meetings with your therapist may be more or less frequent based on your therapist’s recommendations after the assessment. Some clients may need more frequent sessions while others may need less frequent sessions. Your therapist will discuss what frequency of treatment they feel is best for you or your child.
