How to make an appointment with me

  • Reach out to me by email, phone, or text (720-549-0006) to schedule a short phone consultation.
  • We will schedule a time to talk on the phone for about 15 minutes at no charge to determine if I am good fit for you and if you are a good fit for me.
  • If we decide we want to work together, we will find a time to meet regularly. Ideally, we will meet at the same time on the same day of the week. Most of my clients meet with me weekly or every other week. My usual hours for meeting with clients is between 10 am and 6 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
  • I will provide a few referrals if we determine that we are not a good fit for working together.
What to expect when you work with Christin P Bellian

Before your first appointment:

  • I will send you a link to Simple Practice. Simple Practice is the platform I use for practice management, electronic health records, billing, and more. It is very easy to use. You will set up your client portal and provide me with important information.  You will also read and electronically sign several documents including my Disclosure Statement, my Notice of Privacy Policies and Practice, etc.
  • You will also complete an intake questionnaire so I can get to know a little more about you.
  • You will receive a reminder of our appointment by text or email 48 hours before we are scheduled to meet.
  • Please let me know at least 24 hours in advance If you need to reschedule our appointment. You can text, email, or call me.

If our appointment is for teletherapy

  • You will receive a link for our meeting in the appointment reminder email or text.
  • For teletherapy appointments, try to find a private and quiet place where you are not likely to get interrupted. Having privacy makes for a better appointment. Some clients even meet with me in a closet, bathroom, or car!
  • When it is your appointment time, click on the Simple Practice link in the email or text. It is very straight forward to use.  Simple Practice is encrypted and HIPAA compliant platform, so it is very safe.

How you will pay

  • Among the information you provide me before our first appointment is a credit card that is kept on file through Simple Practice. Your card will automatically be charged overnight after our appointment.
