Your First Appointment

Your first appointment can provoke feelings of anxiety since you are going to a new place to meet a new person to discuss things that are very personal to you. This page will give you all of the information that you need about my location with the hopes that it reduces some of that anxiety.

My office is located on the corner of MacArthur and Jamboree in Newport Beach. The buildings look like this. There is free guest parking on the side of the building when you enter from Jamboree (where the Taco Bell is).

My office is in the East Tower (the right entrance). This is what the entrance looks like. Once you enter the building, take the elevators up to the 6th floor. There is only 1 reception area on this floor. Please sign in with the receptionist.

To speed up your intake process please email me (linda@smarttalktherapy.com) the following materials prior to our first appointment:

  • Copy of your driver's license or photo ID
  • Copy of your insurance card (front and back)
  • Complete informed consent

Please also remember to bring a credit card to our first appointment that you would like to use to pay for services.
