Therapy : What To Expect?
If you are new to therapy, you may have many images and ideas that come to mind. You may find it hard to make the initial call. Some may be well versed in therapy, but you may be searching for a new approach or want to find a therapist you connect with. At Knoxville Behavioral & Mental Health Services, we are here to address any questions or concerns you might have prior to an appointment through our free 15-minute email or phone consultation. In order for healing to occur, we believe the connection between you and your therapist must be a good fit. We encourage open and continuous dialogues about our relationship. Please check out "meet the team" to find out more about us.
Once an appointment is requested, the most appropriate team member will contact you to set up an initial time to meet. During this first visit, we will gather some background information in order to further discuss therapeutic options available within our area of practice. This includes the various types of evidence-based treatments, expected treatment duration, and possible referrals to individuals and/or agencies who specialize in a particular area. At the end of the initial appointment, we will collaboratively decide if we are a good fit (e.g., personality styles, treatment options, fees, etc.). We want you to get the most out of our work together!
