Before Your First Counseling Session

You may complete these online Registration and Informed Consent Forms. After completing the forms, look for these icons in the tool bar, directly above the form. You can save a copy for yourself, print and bring the forms with you or send a copy of the file to me as an email attachment. If this seems like more than you want to take on, come in a few minutes early and fill out the forms the old fashioned, pen and paper, way.

Please bring your insurance card so that I can take a copy. There are often dedicated phone numbers and billing address for your particular group that will make it easier for me to process your claim.  If you bring your card, there is no need to write your insurance information on the Registration Form.

See Insurance Information for a suggested list of questions to ask your insurance company before your first session.

You may review information regarding your privacy rights (HIPAA) here.

If you are unable to complete the paperwork beforehand, please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time to do so in the waiting area.

Some questions to ponder before your first session:

  • What issues or problems have presented in your life for which you are seeking counseling now?
  • What would you like to accomplish through counseling?
