What to bring on your first visit

We will need this information to complete your registration:

  • If applicable, contact information for your probation officer, lawyer, case manager, therapist, or anyone else we will need to communicate with on your behalf. Include the name, agency, address, email, phone, and fax numbers.
  • Copies of any court documents relating to domestic violence or parenting (e.g. Parenting Plan, Parenting Evaluations, GAL reports, Order for Protection, Petition for Order for Protection, etc.)
  • Verification of your income if you are applying for reduced-fee services. Acceptable verification of income includes: two paycheck stubs from within the last month, unemployment check stub, current statement of benefit from DSHS, SSI or L&I. If you do not have verification of your income, come into our office and ask to sign a “Self Request for Records” which we will fax to the Washington State Employment Security Department to obtain verification of your income based on your Social Security number. We must have the response back from the ESD  before we can complete your registration.
  • Prepayment of $105 by credit card, cash, check, or money order. This is a partial payment toward the cost of your intake appointment. The balance of your intake appointment will be due at the time of intake.

After you have filled out the enrollment paperwork and supplied the items above we will schedule your intake appointment. The intake appointment is a one-on-one meeting with one of our program therapists for approximately two hours, and its purpose is to gather sufficient information so that we can work with you to develop the most appropriate treatment plan.  This process includes screening for other issues that can interfere with your ability to be successful in the program.  In order to ensure complete understanding of the complexities of your individual situation, we may ask you to provide additional court and treatment documents.

For our DV Dads program you will also need to bring

  • Contact information for your primary domestic violence program including name, address, phone, and fax numbers.
  • Referral form signed by your primary domestic violence program provider.
