What to Expect

Your first contact will be by phone with one of my administrative assistants, either Kate Polk or Jessica Koepf at 303.444.3443. They will help with your insurance and information about my fees as well as scheduling your first appointment.

Initial paperwork will include a HIPAA Privacy Practices Form, a Patient Information and Consent to Treatment Form, and any release of information for professionals you may want me to contact. These forms are available for downloading on this site under Intake Forms. You may either complete these and bring them to your first appointment, or come 10 minutes before your appointment and fill them out in the waiting room.

With youth, I generally begin with a family meeting, followed in about a week with an individual meeting. The third session is with the parents to discuss my formulation and recommendations. This sequence is flexible, as the parents or the child may prefer to speak with me privately for the first appointment. Between appointments I will ask you to complete rating scales. I will contact any involved professionals at your request.
