Your First Appointment
The first appointment is called a "Psychosocial Assessment". This is to gather information on how best to help you. This is not the same as treatment, which will start on your second session. It is similar to when a doctor orders tests, they are "assessing", when they prescribe medication or other therapy, they are "treating".
If you are billing insurance, you will need to bring your insurance card(s). If you have more than one insurance, you will need to bring all of the cards. Please know which insurance is primary.
Also, please either come fifteen minutes early or print off the following forms, and bring them with you.
This form is for your information only. Please read it. You do not need to bring it to the appointment.
