Fees and Polices

General Structure of Sessions

I conduct short or long term psychotherapy in weekly or biweekly sessions.  Length or frequency of sessions can be increased or decreased to reflect the therapy needs of the client.  If the client arrives late for a session, he/she is still responsible for the total fee for a complete session.

Standard Fees and Policies for Sessions

I have a set fee for sessions, unless other terms have been negotiated.  There is no fee for brief phone calls.  Calls lasting longer than 10 minutes will be charged pro-rated. Full payment is due at the end of each session and payment must be made by cash, check or credit card.  Returned checks and balances older than 30 days will be subject to an additional $25.00 service charge.


I do not accept insurance reimbursement.  However, a receipt will be given to you and you can obtain reimbursement from your insurance according to your plan.

Scheduling and Cancellations of Appointments

Since I have reserved our appointment time for you, it is my policy to charge for cancellations received with less than 24 hours notice.

My Availability and Answering Service

I maintain a 24-hour voice messaging service.  Every effort will be made to return calls within a 24-hour period, with the exception of weekends and holidays.
