Cancellation Policy

If you do not attend your scheduled therapy appointment and I have not been notified at least 48 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.


Providing confidential and flexible therapy is very important to me.  As such, I have decided to offer my services outside of the “medical model” which requires a DSM-5 mental health diagnosis in order for clients to be reimbursed by their insurance.  A mental health diagnosis becomes a part of your official record permanently.  Insurers can audit and review your records at any time.  This may be important to know if you hold high clearance for a job or you have reasons to want to keep your personal information confidential.  In addition, insurance companies limit the forms of therapy that can be offered as well as the number of sessions that are covered (e.g. couples counseling and sex therapy are typically not covered under most insurance plans).  Also, having a mental health diagnosis could potentially mean being penalized or rejected for life insurance and long-term care insurance in the future.
