Acknowledgment of Notifications Forms: Once you have read my Patient Agreement Form , and the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practice Form , please sign my Acknowledgement of Notifications Form. This states that you have access to and have read all forms. Bring this to our first session.
Thought Record: Sometimes in our work together we may use a Thought Record sheet, you can download them here.
Sleep Diary: If we are meeting about Sleep Issues or Insomnia Issues, then you can download a 7-day sleep tracker here.
Consent To Release Authorization: There may be times when you and I agree it would be helpful for me to speak with another person to coordinate your care. With the exception of the situations outlined in the HIPAA form, I cannot do this without your written consent. Usually, we will speak about this in person and you will sign the form in my office. However, if you’re unable to meet with me, you may complete my Consent To Release Authorization and send it back to me.
