How do I know if I should see a therapist?

If you have a mental health concern you want to work on, you can benefit from therapy. These issues may involve experiencing negative or unwanted feelings or issues with daily living or school/work/relationships. You may be wanting to learn more about yourself or develop positive coping strategies. You can be really struggling, or just hoping to get ahead of some issues you’re noticing. As long as you are working towards a goal, anyone can attend therapy.

How do I match with a therapist?

At DiveThru, our main focus is to find you the right therapist. With this in mind, we’ve made a therapist matching process that makes finding a therapist a breeze! Click the “Find A Therapist” button in the menu so we can learn more about what you’re looking for and once you’re ready, hit submit. You’ll then get your top 3 DiveThru Therapist matches and can browse through their profiles to learn more about each of them. From there, booking your first appointment is a short click away!

How do I book an appointment?

Whether you’re booking individual, couples’ or family appointments, the process is the same! To book your very first appointment, create a profile first. Once you’ve got your profile set up, you can browse your therapist’s schedule for openings and book whenever you’re ready! Jot down your username and password and in the future, all you’ll have to do is log in (log in button in the menu) to book your appointments.

What do I do after I book my first session?

After booking your very first appointment, you will receive a few emails from us that will give you more info on next steps. First, we’ll have to take care of some important forms. You will finds these by logging into your DiveThru profile and clicking on Settings, then Forms. These will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. During your first session, you and your therapist will discuss consent in more detail, talk about what’s bringing you to therapy and go through any other questions you may have about therapy or the therapist’s approach. For now, all that’s left for you to do is jot down your appointment in your calendar and you’re set!

As a parent, do I have to be at every session my child goes to?

The very first session is when our DiveThru therapists will require your presence in order to obtain consent for your child or teen (anyone under 18 years of age) to participate in therapy. In this session, you and the child’s therapist can discuss family involvement in future sessions. If your child is 12 years or younger, we reserve that very first session for a meeting between the therapist and the legal guardian(s) only to discuss your child’s therapy plan. ***Please note: only legal guardians can provide consent. If parents are separated or divorced and have joint custody, BOTH parents will need to provide consent for the child or youth to participate in therapy. If one parent has sole custody of the child, please bring guardianship documents to the first session.***
