The Initial Counseling Session [video]

By: Maya Georgieva, Ed.D., LPC

Many people who have never experienced counseling before wonder what the first session may look like. You may be wondering what to expect. Even if you’ve been to counseling before, you may not be sure what your new counselor is going to ask you during the first counseling session and what their expectations are. 

Hi everyone, my name is Maya. I’m a licensed professional counselor at Sunstone Counseling in Falls Church, Virginia, and I am also a certified humanistic sandtray therapist. 

I wanted to take a few minutes to share a little bit about the initial counseling session and my approach in this brief video. Contact me at if you’d like to schedule a session or a 15-minute free phone consultation.
