What can I expect for my first session?
Please arrive at least 15-20 min. early to your Intake Session and bring your completed Intake Form and Informed Consent Form, so that Dr. Tanaka can review your paperwork before your session. Also, please read the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices prior to your first session. Seating is available in the waiting area when you arrive early.
The Intake Session will focus on exploring the concerns that are bringing you in for therapy, discussing your background history, and setting therapeutic goals. Please expect 75-90 min. for this session. Also, we will decide if the next session will be a psychotherapy session or Completion Process session.
