Welcome to Roots to Wings! Congratulations on taking the first courageous step: asking for help. Now it’s time to get to work!
Below are forms you will be asked to carefully read and sign before treatment can be started. For children, a legal guardian must sign the consent for treatment. In cases where parents have joint legal guardianship, both parents’ signatures are required. If a parent has sole custody, a copy of divorce decree that orders sole custody is required for records.
Please take some time to read the consent for treatment carefully. If you are able to print, sign and bring to the initial session, that can save some time during the intake. I always review this information regardless to ensure my clients understand what they are signing. I also review the meaning of confidentiality and the limits of confidentiality with minors with the parent or guardian present so all parties understand how this information applies to children.
Please arrive at your appointment on time. If the office door is closed, please wait outside until I come to greet you.
Also, part of the agreement for services is that a no show fee is assessed for any cancellation without 24 hours notice. The fee is 50% of your session fee (100% for reduced or sliding fee clients). The no show fee for clients using insurance is $80. For example, an initial intake and assessment is $160. The no show fee for the intake is $80. The reason for a no show fee is to protect your time and mine. Your session time is reserved for you only. Often, with 24 hours notice, the session time can be filled by another client waiting for an appointment.
I look forward to meeting you and beginning your journey along side of you!
