Therapy Guide

Starting therapy is actually a pretty easy process.  I hope this guide makes it even easier as you prepare for your first session.  I’ve included downloadable forms, directions, contact information and a checklist of what you’ll need to do and bring.

      1. Download and complete the “Intake” and “HIPAA” forms on this page. The intake form is rather short and self explanatory.  The HIPAA form is longer and only requires a signature and date on the last page.

    1. Wouldn’t hurt to take my phone number along in case you make a wrong turn, are running late, etc.  I always check my messages between clients when I’m expecting someone new.
    2. Once at the building, have a seat in the waiting room in suite 308.  There’s a little kitchenette in the waiting room area and feel free to get some cold water or hot tea.
    3. I’ll be out at our appointment time to bring you to my office where we can begin.  Just remember the pressure is not on you.  The first session I like to get a general overview of your struggles and goals.  Again, there is no pressure and if you’re on the quiet side, I’ll have plenty of questions.
    4. The standard session is 50 minutes in length.
    5. Payment can be made before or at the end of session by cash, check or credit/debit card.
