Please fill out and bring the following forms to your appointment:
I currently see clients Monday through Thursday from 8a – 7p. We can schedule standing appointments or as you need them. Meeting regularly will allow you to reap the greatest benefit from therapy. I emphasize the importance of attending all scheduled sessions.
Life happens. A need to reschedule an appointment occurs. You will find me flexible in these situations and willing to find a new time works for both of us. Responsive and timely communication is immensely helpful when the need to reschedule occurs.
I am happy to discuss my fees with you during our initial in-person or phone consultation.
Unless there is a prior arrangement, full payment is required at the beginning of each session. Dependent upon your insurance plan you may be eligible for reimbursement. If this is the case, I will provide you the necessary forms to file for reimbursement.
There is no charge for appointments that are canceled at least 72 hours in advance. Except for unforeseen true/extreme emergencies, your regularfee will be charged for missed or canceled appointments with less than 72 hours notice.
Washington State law requires that all marriage and family therapists present to new clients a disclosure statement that specifies the therapist’s background, experience, theoretical orientation, and approach to therapeutic services. This Intake and Disclosure 2016 form [.pdf] is intended to help you become an informed consumer about these aspects of my clinical practice and your rights as a client. Before our first session please download, review and sign this document.

“This guy can help. Really. Joseph took us back to ground zero in our relationship and guided us to new patterns of connecting. Now, at our most vulnerable moments, we make it through difficult situations and stay connected and loving. (We call these “Joseph moments.”) He really connected with both of us, but brings a special understanding for how afraid most men feel of therapy. He can get to underlying emotions without humiliating either partner. Great sense of empathy and humor, too!”
“Joseph is responsive, knowledgeable, experienced and empathic. We got to work fairly quickly, as I was able to feel comfortable talking with him about my personal issues. He asked questions that encouraged a deeper exploration of how I think and feel about my problems, and myself, providing me a clearer understanding of myself and how I navigate problems. Joseph’s warmth and caring provided a safe place for me to acknowledge my wounded state, and to begin to understand how to heal.”
