Schedule Your First Appointment
If you create an account you can change your appointments anytime.
Please Note: You must be technically savvy to attend sessions with me. This means you need to be able to download the programs I use: VSee Messenger for confidential communication & Zoom for our sessions. I suggest you take the time way ahead of when we meet to set them up a familiarize yourself with them if you are not already.
You must use a desktop, laptop computer or a tablet to join sessions. Tablets may still have some limitations but can work. We cannot do EMDR therapy while you are on a phone. The screen is too small and will not let you have access to information shared in the chat or to see clearly if I do a share screen with information you may need. There are multiple tools you may need at a time and phone apps cannot do this.
VSee Messenger is not compatible with Chromebook yet. I think Zoom has created a new app for Chromebook. You may need to research whether you can share files on Zoom with Chromebook since VSee Messenger is not available.
Also: You will need to be able to DOWNLOAD pdf files to your computer, fill them out, and sign them. There is a video on the new client forms page to help.
There are four steps to set everything up for your First Appointment.
There is a video below if you need help with the set up.
All of the steps and the links you will need are outlined below.
There are 4 steps to complete the set up process. Make sure you complete all 4 steps.
Step 1 - Schedule your first Session.
You can schedule your first appointment here. Once I get notice you have scheduled I will add recurring appointments to your account so that no one can take your time.
When you get done scheduling you can sign up for an account. This will let you login each time you come to this page and see the list of appointments you have on the books. You can choose any appointment time and make changes.
You will reserve your appointment time with a credit card. Your card will be charged at the time of your appointment. The cost is $190.00. The appointments are 75 minutes long.
You will receive a confirmation email after you schedule, change or cancel an appointment.
Make sure to add the email to your safe sender list so they can get through to you regularly.
If you don't see the confirmation email come in right away, check your spam or junk box to see if it was diverted.
You will also receive a 72-hour reminder of your upcoming appointment. 48-hours notice to cancel or reschedule if required or you will be charged for the missing appointment.
Anytime you receive a reminder or confirmation email there will be a button below the text that says: Pay Now, Edit Forms, Change/Cancel Appointment. You can use that link at any time to make changes. Or, if you created an account, you can just return to this page and click Log In in the upper right hand corner of the scheduler and make changes in your account.
Step 2 - Download and set up VSee Messenger.
We will be using a program called VSee Messenger to drop documents back and forth and for private messages.
VSee makes it easy for some to do drop documents that have to be completed in the first session. It also serves as a HIPAA compliant messenger that can be used to share paperwork or private messages.
VSee Messenger is not compatible with Chromebook at the time I added this. You are welcome to check their site to see if they have create an app yet.
Go to the page on my site that gives you all of the instructions to download the program and join my network. I recommend you bookmark this page in case you need it in the future.
Step 3 - Complete the required paperwork.
By our first session we will have to complete the required paperwork (required by the state of WA before treatment can begin). From there we will start gathering history and identifying what you are coming to address.
Once you have completed the required documents, drop the Intake in the VSee Messenger Chat box prior to our session.
Step 4 - Download the Zoom Information and Set up Zoom.
We will be using Zoom for our appointments.
I strongly suggest you download the Zoom application to your desktop or laptop. This will allow you to have full functioning of Zoom. Especially the chat options. I use the chat function in Zoom often to share resources and documents. If you do not use their app you may not be able to receive them. You do not have to pay for Zoom. All you need is to set up a FREE account. As long as you use my link to get in there is no charge to you.
