Through the patient portal you will find the basic forms you will need to begin our work together. The initial necessary forms can be completely online or are available for download. I know there is a lot of paperwork and I wish there were a way around it, but there just isn't at this point. Some forms are required by law, statute, or ethics (such as the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices) and others are there to help us make the very best use of our time together (such as the Adult Client Information Form).
If you are planning on using insurance, you will be asked to complete the Release of Information form that allows me to talk with another provider(s) working with you on this condition for coordination of care purposes. If you have a family member or friend with whom you would like me to be able to speak, you will want to also fill out a Release of Information form for each individual.
