Before Your First Session

When you have been matched with a clinician, the Intake Office will send you an email notification. The email notification will include the name of your clinician, the clinician's supervisor, the agreed upon fee for service and instructions for making online payments. Your clinician will contact you within 72 business hours to arrange your first appointment.

The email notification will also include links to the required new client forms. These forms can be completed online. If you have any questions/concerns about the online forms, please contact your assigned clinician or the intake office at 703.993.1370

Therapy clients will be asked to complete additional online questionnaires when they begin treatment and at regular intervals throughout treatment. The information gather through these questionnaires will be used to determine the best course of treatment and to track treatment progress. Therapy clients should receive an e-mail invitation from GMU OWL Outcomes prior to their first appointment. Please follow the unique link in that email to set up your username and password for OWL Outcomes. 

Once you have set up your username and password with OWL Outcomes, you can log into your OWL Outcomes account anytime using this link.

Lastly, if you have records that would be important for the person testing or treating you to see, it's a good idea to bring those to your first appointment. For example, if you are seeking an assessment due to learning differences, it could be helpful to bring along your school records. If you are currently taking any medications, please bring along the names and dosages of those medications, as well as information about who is prescribing them.
