Instructions for Matthew’s New Clients at Perimeter Therapy:

Hello! I am looking forward to meeting you for our first appointment. I want to ensure that you have the information you need so that we will be ready to meet. Before we can begin treatment, you should complete all of the necessary paperwork. There is a link on this page to access the paperwork, fill the paperwork out and sign the paperwork electronically through DocuSign. Once you have completed the paperwork, I will receive the paperwork and complete my portion and then you will need to upload your paperwork to your theraportal account.

Please do not fill out paperwork prior to scheduling an appt with the office by calling 678-666-4717 ext 101.

All forms must be completed prior to our first appointment. If you have difficulty, please call me directly at 678-666-4717 ext. 112 or email me prior to our appointment at

If you are meeting at the office, there are directions to the office in our Forms section on our website.  Have a seat in the reception area and I will come out to meet you at our appointment time.

If you are doing your session via telehealth, at the scheduled appointment time, please go to the Perimeter Therapy Associates website, click on the link for therapists, go to my bio page and click the link Start Telemedicine Call.   It is important that you do not try to click on telehealth in your theraportal account. That does not work as the doxy link is separate from your theraportal and our practice software. If you have any difficulty connecting, please call me directly at 678-666-4717 ext 112 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 e-mail, 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 missed appointments that are cancelled less than 24 hours in advance. You can always use your patient portal to cancel and re-schedule appointments in addition to the receptionist at 678-666-4717 ext. 101

Parents are required to attend the first session with minor children to review paperwork, complete the initial intake assessment, review informed consent, treatment parameters, expectations, treatment goals, and expectations.

Thanks again for ensuring that all documents are completed. I am excited to work with you and look forward to how we can move forward together in meeting your goals!
