Fees and FAQ'S
I offer a complimentary 20 minute phone/skpe consultation where we may discuss the possibility of our working together.
Professional fees vary based on the frequency of sessions, the length of each session and the number of participants in a session (group). At the initial consultation, we will agree on a fee* and an appointment schedule.
* I do reserve several sliding scale spaces, please inquire if needed.
All fees are due at the end of the session, unless alternative arrangements are agreed upon.
Cash, e-transfer, checks and Paypal are accepted for payment. Payment is due at each session unless previously arranged and agreed upon. Most major insurances are accepted. Please verify with your own insurance carrier prior to your session.
Cancellation Policy: If you cancel or miss a scheduled appointment, and have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session unless another appointment is booked prior to the next scheduled session. However, consideration will be given to extenuating circumstances.
In most cases individual sessions are 50 minutes and take place once a week. In some cases, if every-other-week sessions are more beneficial, arrangements can be made for that as well, where as some people, on the other hand prefer to come several times a week.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is your cancellation policy?
24 hours notice is required for cancelled or rescheduled appointments. Missed appointments are charged in full. Of course, emergencies and illness are considered.
What forms of payment do you accept
I accept cash, e-transfer, checks and PayPal. Payment for individual and couple sessions is due at the time of service.
Do you accept insurance?
I do accept most insurance at this time, however, it is the patient’s responsibility to verify with their insurance company's policy for reimbursement and copay. While some insurance is able to be accepted directly, in other cases a receipt may be furnished which in turn, may be submitted for reimbursement.
What about confidentiality?
The relationship between therapist and client is protected by law and information cannot be disclosed without written consent. The only exceptions are if and when there is suspected child abuse/neglect or when the client threatens serious harm to self or others, in which case every effort is made to ensure the safety of those affected as required by law.
