How To Get Started?

Getting Started Is Easy!

There are a few things needed to get you started with the referral process:

  1. You or someone on your behalf can fill out the appointment request form below OR
  2. A professional can fax the referral on your behalf to our office at (888) 620-2144
Next Steps After The Referral Is Made

You have a referral made on your behalf. What's Next?

You will receive an email confirming receipt of the referral. This email will also have instructions on obtaining recent notes from the most recent mental health provider you have seen within the last five years OR a recent note from your primary care provider. Only one is required, with the mental health record being preferred, if applicable.

You can either have them fax information to us at (888) 620-2144 OR fill out our release of information (also emailed to you) and we will take care of the rest!

If you are having trouble getting records, we will help you. If you have no records to provide, we may schedule a free 15 minute consultation with one our of MSW Interns to best match you with a provider at our agency.

How Long Until Your First Appointment?

We may have a waiting list, but check your emails as it moves rather quickly!

We may have a waiting list, but we prioritize based on urgency of the appointment, availability, and goodness of fit with the provider. This means you could have an appointment without having to wait. The most common reasons someone may remain on our waitlist for a longer time are limited availability in the schedule and goodness of fit with a provider based on identified area of concern. 

Typically waits are no longer than 4 months, and you will be kept up to date via email on your status. You can notify us at anytime if your needs have change you no longer need an appointment or if your availability changes, as this may lead to a sooner appointment.
