To schedule your first appointment call (414) 207-4466 or email email@example.com. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about therapy during a brief, 15-minute phone call prior to our first session.
Phone: (414) 207-4466. Although I am generally not immediately available by telephone, a message can be left at this number at any time of day or night. I check voicemail periodically during business hours and will always attempt to respond to your call within 48 hours, with the exception of weekends, holidays, and times that I am scheduled to be away from the office.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Because the security of email communications cannot be guaranteed, it is recommended that email be limited to requests for initial phone consultations or requests for information. Please only include general information about yourself and your treatment. Any communication that requires immediate attention or a timely response should be made by phone.
New Client Paperwork: Please review and complete the following forms at home and bring them with you to your first appointment, or plan to arrive about 30 minutes early for your first appointment to complete your intake paperwork. This paperwork is extensive, but helps me get a complete view of your history so we can begin the "work" of therapy more quickly. This paperwork is for therapy clients only.
*I offer a free initial 15-minute phone consultation. This gives us an opportunity to discuss your concerns and goals to ensure that we are a good therapeutic match. *
CANCELLATIONS & MISSED APPOINTMENTS
If it is necessary to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I require that you provide at least 24 hours advance notice except in the cases of sudden illness or emergencies. You will be billed for cancellations which don’t meet that criteria. If you provide notice less than 24 hours in advance and you and I are able to reschedule the appointment that same week for a mutually convenient time, you will not be charged for the missed session. I am happy to work with you to reschedule in the event that it is necessary to do so.
Although you can leave me a message at any time, I am generally not available to call you back immediately. Therefore, if you have an emergency that requires immediate attention, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
If there is an emergency during our work together, or I become concerned about your personal safety and we are not able to resolve it together, I am required by law and by the ethical rules of the psychological profession to contact someone that can help keep you safe (for example: emergency response providers, law enforcement, a relative, partner/spouse, or close friend). If I become concerned that you intend to harm someone else, I am required by law to warn the endangered person and to contact law enforcement.
