Policies and Procedures
The content of sessions is confidential, unless otherwise required by law, e.g., in cases of physical/sexual abuse of a minor, or cases where an individual is a physical threat to self or others.
When more than one family member is a client, every effort is made to preserve privacy among family members, but confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.
Sessions are 50 minutes in length. Charge for each session (regardless of number in attendance) is $95.00. Payment is expected at the end of the session and may be made by check, cash or credit card.
HIPAA guidelines, with more details about federal laws and patient rights/responsibilities, are available upon request.
Consultation by email, phone or live chat, while potentially very helpful, is not psychotherapy. Psychotherapy can include treatment of serious mental or emotional disorders, while long-distance consultation is for everyday life problems, stress management, or just needing someone to talk to.
Please do not make an appointment unless you intend to keep it. If you cancel, the appointment will be charged in full. Thank you!
