To begin, the most appropriate assessments based on the priorities for services will be conducted. The information gathered during this initial phase will be used to determine the best "starting place" as well as the best methods for reaching our goals. Remember, we want to meet you exactly where you are! Although assessments may vary from client to client, they typically involve some combination of interviews, rating scales, observations, and direct interaction with the client. Assessment results, along with a plan for treatment, will then be written and reviewed.
