Instructions for Matthew’s New Clients at Perimeter Therapy:

Hello and welcome to Perimeter Therapy Associates.  I am looking forward to meeting you for our first appointment and want to ensure that you have the information you need.

Before we can begin treatment, you should complete all of the necessary paperwork. When I am notified that you have made your first session, I will email you with the necessary paperwork attached. Please fill the paperwork out, sign, and email the documents back to my secure email address:

A note about my email address.  I am contracted as a therapist for the group practice Perimeter Therapy Associates. The email platform that I use, namely ProtonMail, is completely secure and HIPAA compliant, so you should feel confident your information is safe.  In the case of documents that need to be completed by you and returned to me I will use the fully secure client platform on SimplePractice.  I will need to enter your name and email address on that platform to enable this function.  This will allow full security even if your email service is not encrypted.

All forms must be completed prior to our first appointment. If you have difficulty, please call me directly at (770) 934-5633 or email me prior to our appointment at

At the present time, I am only providing services virtually through secure video.  I use a HIPAA compliant telehealth platform called Doxy and occasionally use the SimplePractice version of telehealth.  Just prior to the start time of our appointment I will email you the link for our telesession via my ProtonMail account. If you have any difficulty connecting, please call me directly at (770) 934-5633 at the time of our appointment.

As part of our services, you will be assigned a sign-in for your patient portal by our receptionist. If you do not receive a link for this in your email, please contact the receptionist at our main office number by dialing 678-666-4717 ext. 101.

Please call the main office to cancel or re-schedule appointments. Patients are responsible for the cost of the session if appointments are and not canceled less than 24 hours in advance. You can always use your patient portal to cancel and reschedule appointments in addition to the receptionist at 678-666-4717 ext. 101

I am excited to work with you and look forward to how we can move forward together in meeting your goals!

Matthew Buyert, LPC
