New Patients

Please download the appropriate packet, fill it out and bring it with you to your first appointment.

If you are unable to download or print these forms please contact us and we will have them waiting for you at the office. You will then need to arrive 30 minutes early to complete the paperwork.


Please print out an ROI for each person with whom it would be helpful for us to coordinate care, such as a Therapist, Teacher or Primary Care Physician.


Please review the Privacy/HIPAA statement and the Professional Disclosure statement. They do not need to be printed but should be reviewed. In the packet you will be asked to sign a statement reflecting that you have reviewed these forms.


New Client Checklist:

  • Insurance card
  • New Client paperwork
  • List of medications or actual bottles
  • ROI for anyone with whom you would like us to coordinate care


Five things to know before your first appointment

1. Forms
You can download the forms you need to complete before your first visit. Bring the completed forms to your first appointment. If you cannot download and print the forms, you will need to contact our office at 503-679-6470 and let us know to leave the forms out for you to complete. Please arrive half an hour early to your appointment to complete them prior to our meeting

2. Medications
Please bring a list of all your current medications (including over the counter medications and herbal medications) with you to your first appointment. Some patients find it easiest just to bring their medications to the first appointment.

3. Contact Information
Please bring contact information for your primary care provider and your therapist. On this page you will find forms called "release of information" - please complete one for each provider so that we can communicate with your other care providers in assisting providing you with optimal care.

4. Payment/Insurance
Please bring your insurance card with you to the first appointment.  Prior to our first appointment we recommend that you contact your insurance company directly and ask them these billing questions; this way you know prior to our first meeting what your financial responsibilities will be. If we are out-of-network for you, payment in full for services will be collected from you at the time of service. We can bill your insurance as a courtesy or provide you with a receipt to submit for reimbursement directly from your insurance provider. If are in-network, co-pays and deductibles will be collected from you at the time of service.

5. Policies
Please review our policies before your first visit and review the billing questions. It is our policy that if you need to cancel an appointment that you call us with 48-hour notice so that we have the opportunity to offer the appointment time to another patient. If you do not attend a scheduled appointment or cancel an appointment with less than 48-hours notice, you are responsible for the entire charge for that visit (not the co-pay) as insurance companies do not reimburse for missed appointments. We share office space with other independent practitioners. We are only at the office for scheduled appointments. If you need to contact us, please call 503-679-6470.

We look forward to working with you. We believe that a team approach is best, so we encourage suggestions and full participation by you and your family (if you so desire) in your treatment planning. Thank you!
