First of all, thank you for choosing Kelly Mothner, Ph.D. as your trusted South Bay therapist. I have been providing therapeutic services, including adult, couples and teen therapy, to South Bay area residents for over five years.
Now that you have decided to begin therapy, the first step will be the intake session. Prior to coming in for your first appointment at my Hermosa Beach office, you will need to register for an account through the Client Portal. The Client Portal is an online interface that allows clients to fill out secure online forms, review billing information, make payments, and send general inquiries to me.
To access the Client Portal, please start by clicking the black “Client Portal” button in the upper left-hand corner of any page on my website, or by clicking the button below. If you are an existing user, please click “Existing Client” and sign in using the appropriate login information.
If you are new to the Client Portal, please start by clicking “New client? Create your password”. From there you will be prompted to enter your email address, where you will receive further instructions about how to setup your account. After you have registered, you will have full access to the portal.
I encourage you to read the forms in full before filling them out and signing off on them. By completing these forms prior to coming in for your initial appointment, we will be able to make the most out of our time together. During the intake session we will also have the opportunity to discuss in more depth the particular issues or concerns that are bringing you into therapy at this time.
You will be asked to review and complete the following forms via the secure Client Portal:
Please complete all forms online prior to your first appointment. Also, please note that these forms are hosted on a secure server, so your information is kept completely private.
I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the forms or Client Portal – just give me a call! Additionally, if you do not have a stable Internet connection at your disposal, please let me know and we can work around this.
If you would like to know more about my education, the practice, our location, or services offered, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via phone at 310-892-2572 or online contact form. I look forward to meeting you soon for your first therapy session in Hermosa Beach!
