for children & adolescents


At thoughts and things, the clinical interview is the first step in your journey


The purpose of this interview is to get a better understanding of the challenges you are currently experiencing and develop a plan to manage these difficulties. To gather all this information, you will be asked a bunch of questions by your psychologist, which may include questions about the history of the problem, family, friends, relationships, and school/work, as well as your therapeutic goals.


Once this initial interview is completed, your psychologist will discuss a plan of action, which may include therapy and/or psychometric assessments.
