What to expect when starting therapy in Draper

You are new to therapy or wanting to start soon, and it can feel scary if you don’t know what to expect. Here are some general tips on what therapy will look like in Draper.

Phone Consult

Some therapists in Draper like to start by having a brief phone consultation before scheduling. During this time, the therapist will make sure that you are a good fit for the services they provide—and vice versa.

Initial Sessions

Typically, the first few sessions of treatment will be interview style as a way for the therapist to get to know you and to discuss your current concerns and goals.


Speaking of goals, you and your therapist will likely determine your goals for treatment together, and then discuss a treatment plan.


Treatment will look different depending on your goals and your provider, but during this time you will likely schedule regular appointments and be given homework/skills to practice in between sessions. Throughout this time your provider will check-in on and discuss your progress, and sessions may become less frequent as goals are reached.

Ending Treatment

Typically treatment is ended as goals are reached, though you are welcome to change providers or discontinue treatment earlier if needed. Additionally, most providers welcome clients to return to treatment in the future if other concerns arise.
