Begin Your Journey
The decision to start therapy can, at times, seem overwhelming. We are here to help make the process as easy as possible.
Please contact us with any questions regarding the process. We have listed answers to frequently asked questions to help you begin your journey.
We have provided directions to our office on our website. There is handicap-accessible parking and an elevator to take you to our suites. We do not have a receptionist and share a common waiting area with other professionals in our building. Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete paperwork, have a seat and your counselor will be with you at the start of your scheduled appointment.
Please print and complete or e-mail the following intake forms prior to your appointment. If you are unable to print or e-mail prior to your appointment please arrive 15 minutes early to complete the paperwork. You will find a clipboard with your first name in the waiting area that says Grounded Roots Counseling Services.
During the first appointment you can expect the following:
Reviewing counseling services agreement and financial agreement
Discussing confidentiality protocols and limits
Completing an assessment and symptom checklist for your counselor to begin to understand your concerns
If you are using your insurance, please bring your insurance card.
All co-payments, deductibles, and fees are due at the time of service.
