Below are a collection of forms as well as other documents often used in my practice.
EAP - New Patient Information If you are covered by an employers 'Employee Assistance Program' (EAP), please download this document and complete it. Bring the completed document to the first EAP appointment. It is necessary to obtain the EAP authorization number and provide the number of approved appointments.
"New Patient Information Packet" This downloadable PDF file includes (a) information about my practice, fees and a map to my office, (b) the "New Patient Information Form", (c) The New Patient Intake Qustionnaire". (d) The Informed Consent now required, (e) my Privacy Policies - also required. I'm aware all this paperwork may seem tedious but it is part of the required elements of your Patient Record. Please complete the forms prior to our first meeting so that we don't use the time to complete paperwork or use your appointment to obtain the information.
"Release of Information" This three page form must be completed if you want me to communicate with another medical provider or former therapist. If it seems confusing, feel free to ask me about it.
The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) This self-scored questionnaire is probably the most commonly used measure of Major Depression symptoms. If, after scoring this questionnaire, your score is higher than 17, and your symptoms have lasted more than 4 days, you should consult a physician or psychotherapist immediatly. Bring the questionnaire to your healthcare provider.
