Policies

Confidentiality

Your sessions with a psychologist are considered confidential, which means they are protected by law. I will not disclose information about you without your formal written consent. There are situations, however, in which I am required by law to break confidentiality. These include:

  • if I suspect you are in danger of harming yourself or another person or are unable to care for yourself
  • if I suspect abuse or neglect of a child, older adult (65 or older), or dependent adult
  • if I am court ordered to release information as part of a legal proceeding, or as otherwise required by law

Fees

Please call to discuss my current fees. I accept payment by cash, check, or credit card. Payment is usually made at the end of each session.

Insurance

If your insurance company allows you to be treated by an out-of-network provider, you may choose to submit receipts for reimbursement for your psychotherapy. I would recommend that you contact your insurance carrier prior to your first therapy session to ask about your coverage. I suggest you ask about the following:

  • your coverage for psychotherapy
  • your coverage for out-of-network providers
  • limitations on the number of visits per calendar year
  • your deductible

Cancellation

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, you can leave me a message on my voicemail. I have a 24 hr cancellation policy, so you will be billed for missed appointments that are not cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time.
