PROPOSED COURSE OF WORK: The course of my work usually involves 3 separate phases: 1) one to three interviews to identify problems, complete my assessment, & mutually develop a plan that includes goals & objectives; 2) the middle phase, which may include outside tasks or homework assignments designed to address the goals & objectives outlined in phase one; &, 3) an ending phase. At some point our work together will be finished, hopefully when your goals are met. Or perhaps you will just want to stop, or try a different therapist or type of intervention. In any case, I urge you to speak with me rather than just stop coming. Parting well is an important part of my work, and we should have a chance to say goodbye. I also want to learn from my clients what things I do that are helpful or not helpful. It is also helpful to think about your resources after the end of our work in an effort to strengthen what has been gained.

PROFESSIONAL ETHICAL STANDARDS: The ethical standards of my professional and my personal standards are strict about my responsibility to you. If at any time you question whether I have treated you properly, please tell me. If I do not satisfy you, you have a right to make a complaint to the authorities, and I will tell you how. Naturally, I hope that such a situation never occurs. You may contact the regulatory board from which I hold professional licensure at the following address: Department of Professional & Financial Regulation, 35 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333 (207) 624-8603. Brochures containing rights and information under each of these regulatory bodies are also available in the waiting room.
