Mostly background info and why she's there.  They don't usually get too deep for the first couple of visits, at least that's been our experience.

First session they get a background of your child's life. Her childhood, her schooling, her grades, friends, any family history of mental/physical illnesses. Second session they typically start with the reason why you have come to see them. Be prepared with any evaluations from school, letters from teachers, doctors, etc.

Don't know. Never been to one.

I would think the first visits would be background info and finding out why she is there and what she hopes to have happen by talking to someone.

 Call the office and ask. They should be able to give you good information about what to expect.
