For First Appointment
Your first appointment can be scheduled in person at our office at 30 Washington Ave in Greenwich, CT or over the phone at 203.862.8940. Before the first session, please take the time to review our Patient Intake documents found below: on the left is our Patient HIPAA Notice and on the right are the Patient Intake Forms, both of which must be reviewed and completed prior to your first appointment and can be downloaded here for your convenience.
If you would like your therapist to coordinate with another professional, please fill out the following Consent for Release of Information:
Payment information can be taken at the time of service or when scheduling your appointment . Sessions can be paid for by credit card, cash, or check, with checks made payable to Greenwich Psychotherapy & Associates. Please feel free to discuss any financial questions or concerns you may have when scheduling your appointment or at any time during our work together.
GPA is an out-of-network provider and as such, we do not handle insurance. If you do wish to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, we will provide you with a monthly statement of services upon payment. Please note that all insurance claims for coverage and reimbursement are not the responsibility of GPA.
In therapy, confidentiality is crucial. In order for therapy to work properly, an understanding must exist between patient and therapist that anything and everything discussed in person or via phone is privileged information and will be treated as such. All information disclosed in sessions is private and confidential and will not be disclosed or otherwise discussed without your permission. That being said, in order to protect the health and well-being of everyone involved, there a few, very specific circumstances where disclosure is legally required and confidentiality may be waived if the therapist feels that someone is in genuine danger.
Disclosure is legally required if a therapist...
- Suspects a child or other dependent is suffering from abuse or neglect, physical or otherwise.
- Feels that a client is in danger or presents an imminent threat to oneself or others.
- Is subpoenaed or otherwise required to disclose by a court of law
