How To Get Started?

Getting Started Is Easy!

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

  1. Our office will contact you to schedule an initial consultation
  2. You will meet with one of our MSW Interns by phone for a consultation
  3. Please be sure to check your emails and texts for any communications from us!
Next Steps After The Referral Is Made

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

After you have had your initial consultation call, you will be notified by the office if there is an appointment available or if there is a waiting list. You will be notified if we have a provider that matches your needs and availability after the consultation by the office . You will also be notified if there is a wait for services at that time.

After the consultation call, we may request recent records from your most recent mental health provider and/or your primary care provider. We will take care of obtaining the records on your behalf if this is necessary.

Please be sure to check your emails and texts!

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 2-3 weeks, and you will be kept up to date via email on your status if the wait is expected to be longer. 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.
