In brief: Evaluation

The first appointment will normally include a general psychological evaluation focused in history of the events, and your bio-psycho-social data, also will review your medical, mental status, and family history.
Expect to be asked to describe in detail all aspects of how (when, how long, etc etc) you sleep. Probably, cognitive-behavioral or other types of therapy will be described, offered to you.
