Parents/Guardians are required at the initial evaluation. Typically your therapist will meet with you and your adolescent together to gather information and discuss any questions you might have. After about 45/60 minutes together the therapist will meet with your child individually. During the initial evaluation it is important to discuss with your therapist the frequency in which the therapist will want to incorporate you in treatment. Typically parents are not included in every weekly appointment.
If parents are divorced please bring in a copy of the legal documentation stating legal and physical custody over the child at the initial appointment.
