You can expect to meet with your counselor for what’s called an “intake session,” which is a time set aside for you to get to know one another and articulate what’s bringing you in to the counseling office. Your counselor will find out how they can help and help you set goals for working together. Counselors know that it can be difficult for some to come in for counseling. Therefore, they are sensitive to that process and will take steps to make your working together as comfortable as possible.
