Getting Ready for your first Appointment

Before your initial appointment, you will need to download and fill out the forms below.

You can send them to my HIPAA compliant email (, or you can mail them if your appointment is more than two weeks away.

If you hope to use your insurance, I will need to gather that information as indicated on the Cover page and Insurance  form below as soon as possible, but no later than four days before your appointment so I can verify your coverage. Please see my page on Insurance Questions to help in that process.

I offer a free brief phone or in person consult to discuss your needs, answer questions about therapy or fees and scheduling. Please feel free to email or give me a ring to set up a time to get started.

My office is located in northwest Gainesville in the Millhopper/Thornebrook area.*

2830 NW 41st St. Suite B, Gainesville 32606

At the time of your appointment, come on into the office and take a seat in the waiting room. I will be out to greet you shortly. Should you need to reach me, you can text me at 301.806.0211 and I will get back with you as soon as I finish with my previous client.


*please note that several maps apps do NOT get you to my office but often to Thornebrook II, which is around the corner. Make sure you look for Thornebrook III. My name will be on the building at Suite B.

Phone: 301.806.0211 (I am located in Gainesville, Florida)
