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.
