Before First Appointment

Adults and older adolescents coming for their first appointment will be asked to complete a personal history questionnaire which asks a number of background questions and contains a checklist of current symptoms. Parents of children and younger adolescents will be asked to complete a different version of this history questionnaire. These questionnaires can be downloaded from our office forms area by clicking here.

Depending on the reason you are coming for evaluation and treatment, there may be other questionnaires you’ll be asked to complete either before or after your initial meeting. The main purpose of the questionnaires and inventories is to help us assess your concerns more efficiently. If we think that our understanding of you and your concerns would be enhanced by more extensive psychological testing, we will discuss this with you and provide you with information about the type of tests, their purpose, and the cost.
