YOUR FIRST SESSION
First off, thank you so much for making an appointment with me. As the title implies, this page is intended to explain everything you need to prepare for your first session.
To begin, you will need to download the necessary paperwork. In order to begin treatment, you will need to print and complete these three forms: "Consent to Treatment," "Client Information," and "Notice of Privacy Practices."
ADDITIONAL FORMS—These forms are only necessary if we have previously discussed them.
You can bring the forms (at least the three mentioned above) with you to your first session, fax them to 423-252-2210, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next, you will need to provide proof of your household income to verify your fee for counseling services. Acceptable proof of income include tax statements, bank statements, and pay stubs. You're welcome to bring your proof of income with you to your first session. Or, if you prefer, you can fax them to 423-252-2210, or email them to email@example.com.
The Chattanooga Center for Mind-Body Therapy is located at 6245 Vance Rd, Suite 109, Chattanooga, TN 37421, behind Nutrition World, near the Lee Highway exit off of Highway 153. There is plenty of parking and a handicap ramp for easy access. Below is a picture of the building and a map.
Once you're in the lobby, make yourself at home. There will be complimentary tea and water on the left as you walk in. Feel free to find a comfortable seat and relax.
I look forward to seeing you soon. Thanks again, and please call or email if you have any further questions.
