When you arrive at the therapist's office for your first counseling session in Colorado Springs, Colorado, you can expect a similar experience to that of a doctor's appointment. You'll check in, sit in the waiting room and wait for someone to call your name. If your therapist has an office at home, the atmosphere may be more informal. At Ellie Mental Health, we strive to create a comfortable and prejudice-free environment where you can be yourself and receive the compassionate care you need.
We understand that seeking help can be intimidating and we want to make sure that our clients feel safe and supported. When you come in for your first session, an appointment scheduling specialist will ask you a few basic questions and then connect you to a counselor or therapist who can best help you in your particular circumstances, either through in-person counseling or online counseling therapy. Your therapist will use the first session to get to know you and understand your needs. They will ask questions about your mental health history, current symptoms, and any other relevant information.
This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the therapy process and get a better understanding of what to expect from counseling. In subsequent sessions, your therapist will work with you one-on-one to provide mental health care that is tailored to your needs. Whether you're looking for treatment for a mental illness, support for a recent life change, or help in a specific area of your life, individual therapy is just between you and your therapist. If you're having difficulties, enlist the help of a Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Colorado Springs provider.
Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Colorado Springs is located at the corner of Chancellor and Channel Drive and offers licensed psychiatrists who can meet with clients through online sessions to complete evaluations, manage medications, and more.
