 What to Expect for Your First Appointment

  • ​We will ask you to complete intake paperwork, including a Health History Questionnaire.

Please note that your initial consultation may result in a variety of recommendations according to best practices. While we strive to meet everyone’s behavioral health needs, sometimes we are required to refer to outside agencies or specialists to ensure best results.
