Policies

Frequency of Sessions

Generally speaking, I prefer to see clients on a weekly basis. I find that therapy works best when there is consistency. Ideally, this happens with enough of a break between sessions to process and put what we have started in therapy to work outside of the therapy room but not too long of a break that therapy begins to feel like we are catching up on what has happened in your life in the last two or more weeks. Of course, I understand that it is not always possible to have the means to attend therapy every week and am open to other arrangements.

24 Hour Cancellation Policy

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy whereby I ask for your full session fee if I do not receive at least 24 hours of notice before you cancel your scheduled session.

Confidentiality

Anything that you tell me in therapy stays with me, with a few notable exceptions. The only times I would be legally and ethically obligated to report something you’ve told me, possibly without your consent, would be:

1. If you have a real and imminent plan to hurt yourself
2.If you have a real and imminent plan to hurt someone else
3. If you inform me that a child is being abused or neglected
4.If you inform me that an elder is being abused or neglected 

The only other time that I would release information about you would be if your records were subpoenaed by a court but we should be able to discuss that beforehand.
