New Clients

Welcome to Joyful Beginnings Counseling, the private practice of Paula Lupinetti-Chadwick, MSW LCSW.

*Please note – the office is on the second floor, only accessible by stairs.*

Here is some important information for you to review prior to your appointment.

Visiting the office for the first time:
The office is located at 20 Irvin Ave in Collingswood, NJ. It is right off Haddon Ave, near The Pop Shop & Healthworks. It is within walking distance of the Collingswood stop of the PATCO. You will be looking for a house. Take the driveway to park behind the house. Walk to the front of the house and take the door on the left, up the stairs, and have a seat in the waiting room while you wait for your appointment.

There is free parking available in the back of the office. If the back is full (this rarely happens), there is a lot across from the house that you will need to pay for (available after 6pm), or there is metered parking under the train.

Cash or check is accepted for payment. Payment is due at the time of service.

Appointments: Therapy is a commitment. Please be respectful of your wellness and of my time by doing your best to keep your appointment. If you will need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please give as much notice as you can so that I can give other clients the opportunity of scheduling in that spot. If you are unable to give 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full price of the visit (this price varies as it is determined by your insurance company)..

If you are able to do so prior to your appointment, please review the following forms. Print the first two forms & bring with you to your appointment.

Consent for Mental Health Treatment (print and bring to first session)

Client-Counselor Agreement (save or print for your records)

HIPAA Info – (save or print for your records)
