- All new clients need to make a free 30-minute phone appointment, where we do a basic screening and decide if Gifted Matters is a good fit for your needs.
- If we decide to move forward to an in-person appointment, that will be scheduled while on the phone, or via email after that call.
- You will also receive a welcome email via the client portal, which you can use to sign initial paperwork, set up payments and manage appointments.
Note to parents: If the main client is a child, we usually have a three-session arc before we decide how to proceed in treatment. The first session is for adults only, where we can gather more information and you can speak freely about your child with the team member(s) you are working with. The second appointment is for the child to meet the therapist. Between appointments two and three, any paperwork that exists (reports, evaluations, IEPs etc.) will be reviewed by the team, and then the third appointment is again for just adults, to establish how we will proceed.
