What happens during the first session?
Generally, Dr. Bailey Arizpe completes a comprehensive clinical interview. This includes getting past history and current problems. The first session is also a time where Dr. Bailey Arizpe and the patient can find out if it is going to be a good fit. In reality, we do not get along with everyone and therapy is no different. If for some reason, Dr. Bailey Arizpe cannot help, then she will find someone who can. It is all about the patient getting the best care possible.
If therapy is for young children then usually the first session is mostly spent with the parent/caregiver.
