    Agree--this is actually a legal and licensing requirement in the state of Arizona. Please add asap as the current workaround takes way too long and too many steps.

    I’m a therapist here in the state of Arizona. I would like to see that both the clinician and the client can sign consent forms.

    I figured out a work around! Create an assessment form that is called Informed Consent with your informed consent verbiage and add one for each client, sign and send to client for their signature!

    Heather, how are you able to get the client signature on an Assessment? I tried that but was unable to find a way to get client signature... Perhaps I missed something.

    Having a therapist's signature is also required for the Medical Services Opt Out forms required to all therapist in California who do not accept Medi-cal.  Can the therapist signature option (and date) please be added ASAP?

    A clinician in WA looking for this to be resolved as well! It is a legal issue in WA that we need to have our signatures as well. There should be an option just like there is for clients.
