CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: In response to the risk of virus contagion and transmission, I am not meeting with clients at the office. Instead, I am seeing clients using a telehealth video platform that meets federal standards for privacy and security. Phone (audio only) sessions are also a possibility, primarily when internet service disruptions impact video sessions, but also in cases where they may be a therapeutic advantage.
Appointments are available on some mornings, afternoons, and evenings.
Sessions are typically 50-minutes in length, although it is also an option to have 75-minute sessions. Your help in ensuring they start and stop on time is valuable to me, and benefits others who use my services. Providing payment at the beginning of each session contributes to our keeping to time boundaries. I also set an audible timer that lets us both know it is time to wrap up, schedule the next appointment, and part company.
When appointments are missed due to an emergency situation, such as sudden illness, serious accident, or similar extenuating circumstance, and I am informed of the situation, no fee will be assessed. When there is no crisis or emergency, and an appointment is cancelled or rescheduled with a minimum of 24-hours notice, there is no fee. Otherwise, the full session fee is due for a missed appointment. This policy is applied in a consistent and straightforward manner when an appointment is missed without notice.
Special Fees for work performed outside of our sessions:
Health Insurance / Health Savings Account / FSA
I am not an in-network provider for health insurance companies. I do provide itemized and coded receipts for clients who will seek reimbursement using health care benefits. When an additional form may be required as part of the submission, clients may send me the appropriate form and I will complete the provider section.
If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) you might be able to make direct deposit, person-to-person transfers from your account. Please ask me about this if you’re interested.
Please call or email me to schedule your initial appointment. We will set up subsequent appointments at the end of each session.
