There is a lot of paperwork that needs to be completed before and during services.
Forms are usually filled out electronically online using a secure client portal, which will be set up after our initial phone consultation if we both agree to start counseling services. Paper forms are also available if you are unable to access and submit them electronically. You can review some forms here.
All clients must read and sign BOTH of the following forms and prior to the first session. (You do not need to print out or submit these paper forms unless you are instructed to do so.)

This document covers HIPAA requirements.
You will need to sign additional documents prior to your appointment. These forms may include financial consent forms, treatment consent forms, communication consent forms, or consent for how counseling is delivered. The specific forms you need to sign depend on your circumstances and will be discussed prior to your first appointment. You may need to sign additional forms as counseling progresses.
Client Intake Information and Assessment Questionnaire Forms
Client intake forms and assessment are completed online using a secure client portal. These will include questions your contact information, mental health and relationship history, current mental health symptoms, reasons you are currently seeking counseling, and other information that may be necessary for your counseling.
No Surprises Act Documents
Gresham Counseling and Therapy LLC does not accept or bill any insurance for payment. All clients must pay for services out-of-pocket / self-pay.
Some of the No Surprises Act documents require you to sign a paper copy and submit it prior to your first appointment. A paper copy can be mailed to you, or you can print the document yourself. You will need to sign the document and either mail it in or scan and upload the whole document to your client portal. Please note, mailing documents can take time and may delay your appointment.
