Words of Wisdom:

“You can’t get hooked
by rejection
unless you’ve got
the other half
of the hook
already rotating around
inside you.
Don’t give others the power to reject you. Remove the internal voice that makes you unacceptable in your own eyes.”

~Judith Sherven, PhD &
James Sniechowski, PhD

“Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”


Before Your 1st Appointment



Dear New Client(s):

Please pardon the paperwork for our first meeting. Much of what you will be reading and signing is required by law. Other information will assist me in attending to your specific needs. I will be happy to discuss any questions you have about the forms at our meeting.

I request that you read and complete the various forms in the "New Client Package" and bring them to our first meeting. Filling them out beforehand will insure that the time we spend will get to the heart of your needs more directly.

The HIPPA Leaflet is for you to keep and refer to regarding your privacy rights regarding your Protected Health Information.
