Preparing for Your First Appointment
After scheduling your appointment, you will receive an email from Simple Practice, which will provide you client portal access and the ability to complete all necessary intake paperwork for your first appointment. You will need 15 to 20 minutes to complete all forms.
If you are under the age of 18, you will need parental consent unless you are experiencing a mental health emergency. Please notify staff if you are a minor prior to your first appointment to obtain the proper consent form.
On your client portal you will have the ability to set up appointment reminders via email or text. The email and text communications are through the secured, HIPAA compliant database of Simple Practice.
