10 Tips for Your First Session Jitters

Nervous for your first therapy session? Here are some tips! We get it, the first session is scary. Nothing like telling your life story to a stranger, right?



1) Share what you want, skip what you want.

Your therapist will have a lot of questions during the first session. This is just so they can get to know you and understand your situation. Honesty is the best policy, but we understand that we are strangers and you may not want to share everything right away. If there is a question you'd like to skip, just let us know.

2) Wear something comfortable.

3) Grab a snack, or a pop.

4) Be somewhere where you are comfortable sharing.

5) Sit where you are comfortable.

6) Grab a blanket or pillow!

7) Don't stress about getting a diagnosis.

8) Just be honest.

9) It's okay to cuss a little.

10) If you know what you need, or don't, tell us.

We hope this helps! When it comes down to it, get comfy and dive in! If you have any other questions before your first session, let us know! No question is too silly.
