Fees & Length of Sessions
You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held or, if you prefer, you may pay in advance. Please contact me to discuss fees.
I recommend an initial couples counseling session of 80 minutes. Subsequent sessions are typically 55 minutes for couples, but you may choose to continue with 80 minute sessions if you wish.
Individual sessions are typically 50 minutes.
Sliding scale services are available as needed and if possible given my schedule and commitments. Please inquire.
Cash, check and credit cards are accepted, with a 2% fee for all credit card transactions.
If you need to cancel or rearrange an appointment, you are required to provide 24 hour advance notice. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full session.
Legal and ethical responsibilities require that private sessions remain confidential. Therefore, no information will be released to another professional or agency without your written consent. Exceptions will be made only if you endanger, or may endanger, yourself or others, and/or in the case of child abuse or elder abuse. In these cases the law requires your therapist to share certain information with specific outside parties.
I am available by telephone should a situation arise that cannot wait until your next scheduled appointment. In such cases, please leave a message on my voicemail indicating the nature of the situation, and I will return your call as soon as possible. If you are experiencing an emergency and need immediate assistance, please call 911.
