1. What is an Intake Packet?

An intake packet is a collection of forms designed to gather information about you and your mental health history. These forms typically include a client information form, a consent form, a release of information form, and an assessment questionnaire. At Overcomers Counseling, the intake packet is completed online through our secure portal.

2. Why Do I Need to Fill One Out?

Completing the intake packet is a necessary part of the therapy process. It provides your therapist with important information about your mental health history, current concerns, and any goals you may have for therapy. It also ensures that your therapist has the appropriate permissions to communicate with other healthcare providers, if necessary.

3. What Information Will I Need to Provide?

The intake packet will ask for basic information such as your name, address, phone number, and insurance information. It will also ask about your mental health history, including any previous diagnoses, medications, and counseling or therapy you have received in the past. Additionally, the packet will ask about your current concerns or reasons for seeking therapy.

4. Will I Need to Bring Anything With Me to My First Appointment?

Once you have completed the intake packet, your therapist will review the information and prepare for your first appointment. You will not need to bring anything with you to your first appointment, but it may be helpful to bring a list of questions you have for your therapist or any additional information that you feel is important.
