What To Expect

Meetings

We will typically schedule one 50-minute psychotherapy session per week at a time we agree on, although sessions may be more frequent as necessary. Once you have scheduled an appointment, you will be expected to pay for it unless 24 hours advance notice is provided.

 

Health Insurance

I am in-network for Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO. For other health insurance providers, I bill as an out-of-network provider.

 

Professional Fees & Payment

Financial arrangements will be made before the first meeting. If you are paying out-of-pocket, the fee will be set at the prevailing rate and is due at the time of our meeting, unless we agree otherwise.

 

Contacting Me

I am usually available by telephone Monday through Friday during business hours. I make every effort to return contact within 24 hours, with the exception of weekends, and holidays. If you are unable to reach me and feel that you cannot wait for me to return your call, contact your family physician, the nearest emergency room, or call 911.

 

Confidentiality

In general, the privacy of all communications between a patient and a psychologist is protected by law, the only exceptions being if you pose an imminent risk of violence to yourself or someone else or you disclose current and ongoing abuse of a child or elderly person.
