Child and Adolescent Therapy/Family Therapy
Scheduling an appointment
Please, call Christine Pierozzi-Matusek, LCSW to discuss the possibility of working together and setting up an initial appointment. Due to my schedule, phone calls generally reach my voice mail initially. I make every effort to return your call the same day. If you are difficult to reach, please leave me some times you will be available. Most people provide their contact information and share a very brief description of the concerns that are leading them to seek therapy. I provide a 10 to 15 minute free telephone consultation so that we can determine if I would be helpful for your needs.
I offer day, evening, and weekend appointments. The first appointment is an initial assessment where a series of questions are discussed in a relaxed and comfortable way. The purpose of this first appointment is to get to meet you, your child and understand your concerns that will help me develop a specialized treatment program for you and your child. The first appointment is usually 50-60 minutes in length. Follow-up appointments are typically a little less than a hour, however there are several insurance companies that only pay for 45 minute sessions. I follow those insurance guidelines.
Preparing for your first appointment
New clients are asked to print out a registration packet as well as the Child Clinical Assessment Packet under the New Forms section. The registration packet includes two documents for you to read: the Client Agreement and the Notification of Privacy Practices. It also contains two forms for you to print out, complete, and bring to our first meeting: the Signature Form and the Client Information Form. The Child Clinical Assessment Packet needs to be printed out and completed and brought to first meeting as well. Completing this paperwork in advance will allow us to focus immediately on how I can provide help when we first meet. Also please bring your insurance card and drivers license because I will need to make a copy.
