Before your first appointment
I am so glad that you have decided to start therapy with me. Before your first appointment, I need you to complete some paperwork that you will bring with you to your first appointment. I estimate this will take you between 30 minutes and 1 hour. It is important you try to complete the paperwork before your appointment. If it is not completed, we can complete it together at your first appointment, but that will mean less time in our first session to focus on what brought you to therapy.
I am happy to mail you the paperwork if you are unable to print it out. Call or email me with your address and I will put a packet in the mail.
Please complete these:
- Fill out and sign the Adult Intake Form
- Review the Notice of Privacy Practices
- Sign the Receipt and Acknowledgment of the Notice of Privacy Practices
- Review and sign the Informed Consent & Practice Policies contract
- Review the Authorization for Release of Information form and consider who, if anyone, you would like me to communicate with about your care
Depending on your reason for seeking therapy, I may ask you to complete the following intake screenings or questionnaires as well. You do not need to download or fill these out unless I specifically ask you to.
