First Time Client Information

First time clients please download and complete the New Client Questionnaire and the New Client Information Form. Bring it with you to your first appointment or email the completed forms to me if we will meet via Vsee.

Follow up appointments with Joy are made at the end of each current appointment.

Vsee is a HIPAA approved video conferencing option Joy uses to meet with clients who because of health or geographic reasons are unable to meet with her in person. It works much like Skype and other online meeting options. It is used widely by counselors and other mental health support providers to provide a safe and confidential meeting option for remote meetings. Joy chooses to use it for the confidentiality it provides to her clients. To see how Vsee works, click here.

Confidentiality

I abide by standards of the code of Ethics of The International Association of Coaching (IAC). What we discuss during a session is private and is held strictly confidential, unless the Illinois Law requires otherwise.

Please note that I am not a Licensed Therapist. I am a coach, teaching relaxation and stress management techniques. If I believe at any point throughout our sessions that you need professional help, then I’ll discuss this with you and refer you to a Mental Health Professional or Emergency Service Professional that can offer the necessary help you might need.
