First and foremost, an important priority of starting the counseling process is establishing a trusting relationship between the counselor and client. I highly value communication and tailor my counseling style to the individual’s needs. During our first session, we will complete a few pieces of intake paperwork, identify your reasons for seeking counseling, establish goals for our sessions spent together, and answer any questions you may have.
To save time during our first session, please feel free to print, complete, and bring the following forms with you. The "Release of Info" is if there's anyone (doctor, psychiatrist, school counselor, etc) you want me to collaborate with. Teen forms (ages 14-17) need signature of teen and parent/guardian. (Although, teens ages 14+ can consent without parent/guardian signature.) The HIPPA and Professional Disclosure forms are available for you to read.
