Practice Info

Professional Fees:  I will discuss with you in advance my fees and any anticipated fee increase.

Payment Methods:  All payments are due at the beginning of each session.  Payments are made by check or cash only.  Sorry, no credit card service.   No monthly “super bills.”

Cancellation Policy:  Your sessions are reserved for you alone.  I have a 48-hour cancellation policy and will charge for missed sessions.  The exception is in cases of emergency or illness.

Insurance Reimbursement:  I do not accept insurance for the Gottman Method Couples Therapy.   Individual Psychotherapy services may be reimbursable by some plans.

Length of Sessions:  Individual Therapy sessions are 50 minutes to 80 minutes, depending on your needs.  Clients typically come once a week, but may attend more frequently or less frequently, as the need arises.  Meeting times and length of sessions are discussed in advance.

Emergencies:  I cannot be reached immediately.  If you are in crisis, call 911 or the Community Crisis Hot Lines in the county where you live.

HIPAA:  This office is compliant with all HIPAA laws.  You will receive a written notice of all privacy practices of this office, describing your rights concerning your health information.   You will be asked to sign and date it at the time of the first session.
