Before you can officially begin treatment at Petoskey Center, you will need to schedule an initial intake. Please call 832-202-2283 to set up an appointment.
Upon scheduling an intake assessment, we will send you forms to complete and return before your appointment. If you have had psychological testing or were recently discharged from the hospital, please bring your report or discharge summary. This information helps us get to know you without repeating the work you’ve already done.
During the actual face-to-face intake, you will meet with Dr. Markey. Together, you will
- explore your current physical, mental, and emotional difficulties,
- identify how these issues impact your daily functioning, and
- clarify your treatment goals.
For some patients, it can be incredibly difficult to talk about their difficulties, but Dr. Markey will do her best to help you feel comfortable as you work to share your life experiences with her. Having learned about you from the intake and any paperwork provided, Dr. Markey will work with you to determine a treatment plan that fits your specific needs. If you and Dr. Markey feel that the Petoskey Center is a good fit for your needs, she will identify a start date at that time.
We do not accept patients with active, primary addictions, primary eating disorders, or active psychosis.
