You may print off our New Client Information Packet prior to your initial appointment and bring it in to save time on the day of the appointment.
You will still need to bring proof of insurance on the day of your appointment.
If you would like medical records sent to another doctor's office or to a school you can fill out our
Release of information and mail or bring in.
NOTE that therapy notes are not considered part of your medical records according to HIPAA Federal Guidelines.
Consent for non legal guardian to bring minor for treatment form should be filled out if you would like for another adult to bring your child to an appointment.

It is required for a parent (or legal guardian who is primary caregiver) to attend the first session. There may be a delay in services if they are unable to make it to the first appointment.
All of the forms are available at the office.
Tips for a smooth visit
* Arrive 15 minutes early for all visits.
* Bring your insurance card to your first visit and provide updated insurance information each time there is a change. If you do not provide a copy of your insurance card you will be considered a self pay and required to pay the self pay rate in full on the day of your visit.
*Bring any pertinent records from schools or other providers.
*Have a complete list of all the client's current medications and a list of any psychotropic medications previously prescribed.
*Be prepared to pay your copay or full amount of self pay rate.
*If there are any custody arrangements through the courts we will need a copy of the court decree to keep on file. It is the client's responsibility to keep us informed of any custody changes.
*Make sure a parent or legal guardian attends the first appointment and signs a consent for any other adult to bring the child.
*We cannot speak to anyone on your behalf unless there is a signed Release of Information on file. This includes a spouse or parent of and adult (18 years or older) who is checking on an appointment or balance. We are more than happy to work with a relative or friend on your behalf but will require a signed Release of Informatin prior to providing any informaiton. If you would like to add someone to your account please ask about a Release to keep on file. You may choose to limit that Release to appointments or billing only.
*All new clients for psychiatry require a referral from the most recent treating psychiatrist. If you have never seen a psychiatrist we will also accept a referral from your primary care provider.
