The first step is to call (770) 898-7000. One of our counselors/coaches will contact you to answer any questions you may have and gather some general information from you. Or, if you’d like, you can fill out our online Information Request form. You will then be assigned to a counselor/coach who will contact you within 24 hours to set up an appointment.
Counseling/Coaching sessions at Center for the Healing and Cultural Arts @ Chastity House typically last 30-45 minutes. During this time, you and your counselor will examine the subject matter that brings you into counseling. Often, this involves looking at current behavior and thought patterns as well as possibly exploring historical areas such as past family or social relationships.
When you arrive, you will be asked to fill out a Client Information sheet, which includes biographical information. (If you would prefer, you can print a copy of the Client Information Form, fill it out, and bring it with you to your initial session.) Please also bring your insurance card if you have insurance. Your counselor will go over our Policies and Procedures, which includes a confidentiality statement. A per-session fee will be discussed and agreed upon. You and the counselor will then begin discussing the issues and concerns that bring you in for therapy. This is also a time for you to ask questions and express concerns you may have about your counseling experience. You and the counselor will end by determining how often you will meet and scheduling your next appointment.

One important aspect of counseling is your level of participation. The common phrase “You get out what you put in” definitely applies here. At times, the counseling process may be challenging and may bring up issues and feelings that you would rather avoid. However, by addressing and dealing with these areas you are beginning to take steps toward growth and healing.
