I'm ready to begin therapy, now what?!

Next Steps


Step 1: Initiate Contact

You have two options to initiate services.

1. Schedule a free 30-minute video consultation by visiting: https://blueprintmylife.clientsecure.me/

2. Call (619) 844-1345 or email us. Please provide us with the best phone number to reach you directly, times you are available to have a private video consultation, and the type of therapy you’re seeking (Individual, Couples, Family). 

Step 2: Telephone Intake

A Blueprint psychotherapist will conduct a 30 minute initial video consultation intake. This meeting will cover a variety of areas including: important aspects of your personal life, any risks you are facing, and the fee you can afford. The therapist will answer questions you have regarding BCS, the types of therapy we provide, and next steps. There is no charge for this confidential conversation. If BCS is not a good match for your needs, you will be provided with referrals.

Step 3: Prepare for Your First Session

After your initial video consultation, you will receive a client portal invite to complete intake paperwork. This must be completed BEFORE your appointment. Emails are usually received from: yourprovider@simplepractice.com.

You can also access the client portal by visiting the following link (https://blueprintmylife.clientsecure.me) and inputting the email you used to sign up services. 

Step 4: What to Expect in Your First Session

During your first session, your therapist will:

  1. Review the intake paperwork

  2. Verify Insurance and/ or Payment Preferences

  3. Complete an Initial Assessment (biopsychosical) and discuss Treatment Goals. 

Step 5: Ongoing Therapy

At BCS, we use a variety of therapeutic approaches to help you meet your goals. Typically,  you and your therapist will meet at the same time every week. Sessions are 50 minutes long. As therapy progresses, you and your therapist may decide on the best session frequency (weekly, biweekly, monthly). You may continue your work with your therapist for as long as you both see fit.

Step 6: Discharge

Throughout your healing journey, we will review the progress that has been made during the duration of your therapy sessions. We will proceed towards discharge when:

1. Your goals have been met. 

2. The maximum therapeutic potential reached.

*Therapeutic Resources and Community Referrals will also be provided, if needed.
