Fees and Payment:
Fees are set at the time of phone consultation and I do offer sliding scale rates for those with demonstrated need. Payment is due at the time of service. If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, you must do so at least 24 hours in advance. If we are unable to reschedule during the same week, or if you make a late cancellation you will be charged the full session fee.
In other cases I serve as an out of network-provider who accepts payment at time of service. You will be provided an itemized receipt for your insurance company. Please contact your insurance provider regarding out-of-network benefits and deductibles.
The law protects the relationship between a client and therapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. There are a few exceptions when this law does not hold.
These exceptions include:
- Suspected child, dependent adult, or elder abuse.
- If you threaten serious bodily harm to another, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If you intend to harm yourself, I will make every effort to enlist your cooperation in ensuring safety. If you do not cooperate, I will take further measures to ensure your safety.
