The Intake Call
The intake call marks the beginning of your therapeutic journey at Integrative Psychotherapy Associates, LLC. It is an initial conversation between you and one of our intake specialists aimed at understanding your needs, exploring how we can support you, and guiding you through the process of beginning therapy.
The conversation usually lasts around ten or fifteen minutes and serves as an opportunity for you to express your goals for therapy, ask questions about our practice, and ensure that you feel comfortable and confident in taking the next steps toward beginning therapy. During the intake call, we will listen attentively to your concerns and gather essential information to match you with a therapist best suited to address your specific needs and preferences. Specifically:
- We'll provide an overview of our practice's services, therapeutic approaches, and what you can expect from the therapy process.
- We'll ask about your reasons for seeking therapy, address any specific concerns or challenges you're facing, and gather some preliminary information to better understand your needs.
- We will discuss logistical details such as scheduling, insurance, and fees, and answer any initial questions you may have about the therapeutic process.
If you decide to move forward, we will connect you with your therapist who will then follow up directly with you to set up your account on our client portal and schedule your first appointment.
We understand that discussing personal matters can be sensitive. Rest assured, our intake call is conducted with the utmost confidentiality and respect for your privacy.
