  • What is your cancellation policy?

    If you must cancel an appointment a 24 hour advanced notice is required to avoid charges for your reserved time.  Fees cover your reserved appointment time with your therapist and are not contingent upon your attendance.

  • Do you take insurance?

    No.  I do not work directly with insurance.  Due to the reporting requirements, limits on treatment, and the intrusion upon client’s privacy by the managed care systems I choose not to accept insurance co-pays.  I will, upon request, provide you with a Super Bill to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.  Do check with your insurance to determine if this is an option for you.
