Get Started

To schedule a first appointment, call Mindful Therapy Group at (425) 640-7009.

David Flack, MA, LMHC, CDP ~ Seattle Area Counseling for Teens, Young Adults, and OthersThis number connects you to Mindful Therapy Group’s intake staff, who will discuss scheduling options and verify your insurance.

During our first meeting, we’ll explore your goals for counseling, discuss possible treatment approaches,  and I’ll make an initial diagnosis.

Insurance companies require a diagnosis, so this is an essential part of our first session — at least if insurance is paying for services. I don’t believe its possible to make a thorough, thoughtful diagnosis in just one session, so my initial diagnosis is always provisional.

If counseling seems appropriate and we agree I’m a good fit for your goals and needs, at the end of this first meeting I’ll probably suggest ongoing appointments. I believe therapy is most effective when sessions occur on a predictable basis. With that in mind, I typically recommend weekly appointments at a regularly scheduled time, at least for the first few months.

Would you like to chat before scheduling an initial session? I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation. This gives you an opportunity to ask specific questions you may have and see if we’d be a good therapeutic fit. The consult can include the parent, teen, or both. To schedule a consultation, contact me today.
