Confidentiality & Privacy policy

 

The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information regarding our work together cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions include:

  • If there is suspected child abuse or elder abuse I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.

  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.

  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.


Fee policy

Payment is expected at the time of service. I accept payment in the form of cash, check, electronic bank transfer, or credit card. Late payments are subject to a $25 late payment fee.

Payment plans for Intensive retreats are available. Please inquire for details. 


cancellation policy

A cancelled appointment delays our work, and is best avoided if at all possible. If you must cancel, please note the following:

  • No-shows or cancellations within 24-hours will be charged the full-fee

  • Cancellations between 24- to 48-hours will be charged a fee of $1/minute of scheduled time missed (i.e. $75 for a 75-minute session).

  • No fee will be charged if I am able to transfer your appointment to another client, so last-minute scheduling challenges are a great opportunity for you to send a friend to see me.  

Sessions are billed for the time scheduled, and appointments are expected to begin and end on time. 

On a case by case basis I will waive my cancellation fee in the event of a serious or contagious illness or emergency.  

Intensive retreats, mini-intensives, and workshops are subject to their own cancellation policies. Please refer to your contract for details.
