A therapist: Will ask you about your problems, get a history of what you are experiencing, family history, and assess what is wrong. See if they feel supportive. Then they will make recommendations for treatment options.

45-50 minutes : A typical psychology intake lasts an hour and a half. Basic identifying information is gathered, such as current emotional issues, a basic history, any physical ailments it may be impeding on psychological functioning and medications that are currently being taken. Follow-up sessions after the intake typically run 45 to 50 minutes.
