Forms and Documentation
I have a client portal where you can digitally and securely complete the documentation I use in my practice. You can access that portal and complete the documentation by going to the Simple Practice Client Portal page and creating your account. These forms are listed here so they are always available and so that you can review them and know what to expect, The documents here are intended to be a reflection of you, and you can complete them in any way that best represents your identity, history, and experience.
