Once an intake session is scheduled, I'll provide you with the forms you'll need to complete in order to begin services. This includes a consent for services form, an intake form, and when applicable, the sliding scale policy. I'll distribute my Professional Disclosure Statement, which is also found below. This is a document that I am required to give to all clients before beginning services.
Please note that the intake form asks for a fair amount of information, so it's best to allow for adequate time and self-care (if needed) when completing it.
Clients have a few options for completing and submitting paperwork. I'll provide you with these details following the consultation.
If you have any questions about paperwork, please contact me.
As a reminder, payment is due following each session. For more information, visit the Services and Fees page.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your first appointment, please contact me at least 24 hours in advance. If it is less than 24 hours, please contact me anyway! Any notice is more helpful to me than no contact/no show. You can find my contact information here.
I will provide you with a link to check-in to my secure, HIPAA-compliant online platform through doxy.me. If you want to know more about secure video, equipment requirements, and tips for a successful online session, please visit doxy.me here.
