If you decide to see me for therapy, I will send you a link to my secure patient portal. There you will find all of the forms necessary to read, complete, and sign before our first appointment. The intake form is the longest one to fill out, because it is your opportunity to tell me about yourself and your goals. There are several questions about your history, but we talk in-depth about all that when we meet in person. Most people find filling out the intake form to be a helpful way to organize their thinking before the first appointment. The other forms for you to read and sign on the client portal are about my privacy policies and informed consent, which are typical HIPAA forms that you find at most medical appointments.
Below is a link to my Professional Disclosure Statement. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am required to have this statement available for all clients to read before they see me, although most of the information it contains is within the pages of my web-site.. It is also available through the online client portal.
