New Client Information

Hello,

Welcome to Archway Counseling and Consulting, I look forward to working with you. As I have moved to a teletherapy only practice, I use HIPPA compliant resources so that your information will remain confidential and secure.

The Paubox Email Suite allows me as a clinician to write and send encrypted HIPAA compliant emails from a laptop, desktop or mobile device. When clients respond to an email generated by the clinician the response is also HIPAA compliant and encrypted, thus Paubox allows clients to view messages and attachments without the burden of extra passwords, downloading an app, or logging into a portal. This seamless encryption allows fast and easy communication that is encrypted and HIPAA compliant.

I use Doxy.me as the platform for teletherapy. Doxy.me is simple. The client visits the clinicians doxy.me room using a standard computer or mobile device. No special hardware or software are necessary. As secure data transmission and patient privacy is a top priority, doxy.me utilizes state-of-the-art security and encryption protocols, making doxy.me compliant with HIPAA and HITECH requirements.

In order to commence counseling, I will need to gather background and insurance information. Once you make initial contact with me, I will send you an encrypted email from my account at [email protected] When you reply to this email, anything you send to me, is encrypted and HIPPA compliant.

You will complete the initial paperwork before your first session. This will allow me to review the information that you provided before our session. This paperwork covers a wide range of history, and will take about 50-60 minutes to complete. Please allow enough time before our first session to complete. During the first session we will

1) review and sign the legal documents,

2) review the information you provide from the paperwork,

3) spend time getting to know you, and

4) discuss your counseling goals, and outline a plan to best attain those goals.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 303.642.6636 or email me at [email protected]. I look forward to meeting you.

Sincerely,

David Johns, PhD, LPC, LAC, NCC
