Thanks for making your first appointment. Here is everything you’ll need to know and do before your first visit.
Step One—The Paperwork
Please download, print, fill out and bring the following forms to your first appointment. It is best to keep a copy of the Disclosure Statement for your own records. (.pdf’s will open in a separate window or tab)
- Personal Intake Form
- Disclosure Statement
- Couples Intake Form (Each partner needs to fill out their own form)

Step Three—The First Meeting Goals
In the first session, I usually ask what brings you into counseling and what you would like to change. You are welcome to ask as many or as few questions as you like. The main goal of the first session is to get to know each other to see if you will feel comfortable with me as your counselor.
Individual Counseling—$125 per session.
Couples Counseling—$145 per session
I accept debit and credit cards and I offer a $5.00 discount if paying by cash or check (made out to Paul Elmore).
Do You Take Insurance?
Unfortunately, I do not bill insurance at this time. This is an intentional choice due to the limitations many providers place on the therapeutic process. (I wrote more about the reasons in this blog post.)
