THE INTAKE PROCESS
We utilize a HIPAA compliant online software platform called Simple Practice to send the initial demographic and intake paperwork in advance of your appointment. For those able to do so, we ask that you complete this paperwork prior to your first appointment. This allows us to review your concerns and much of your history prior to you coming in and allows us to focus more on the presenting issues during the first session, rather than simply filling out paperwork.
Sometimes it is is hard to know if you are going to click with your therapist. We understand this and for those who are hesitant to schedule an initial appointment without a preliminary conversation, we offer complimentary 15 minute phone consultations.
Most clients will begin therapy sessions either weekly or biweekly. Those who prefer to have a consistent time most weeks will likely need to book several sessions, as slots are not guaranteed. A therapeutic hour is 50 minutes to allow time for rescheduling and taking notes. Appointments can be requested through your individual therapist or on the online portal. If you are an active client, we will often schedule our next appointment at the end of the session.
