Since the scheduling of an appointment requires the reservation of time specifically for you, a minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required for canceling or rescheduling an appointment. Without required notification, you may be billed up to the full amount of your scheduled appointment or the maximum amount allowed by your insurance company. I always appreciate as much advance notice of cancelations as possible so that I can make the vacated time slot available for someone else on the waiting or cancelation list. Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation with this cancellation policy.

Contact Between Sessions

If you feel an urgent need to contact me between scheduled therapy sessions, I am available for brief between session phone calls or email correspondence.  Due to attending to other clients, it may take up to several hours to return your call.
