Policies & Procedures
Due to the constraints placed on both therapists and their clients, I do not accept insurance directly. However, I will gladly provide you with a bill of service which you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement as outlined by your plan.
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. If a financial concern arises during the course of our work together, please feel free to discuss it with me and we will generate a plan for the continuation of our work together.
Cash and checks are accepted for payment at the time services are provided.
When I book a session with you or your child, the time is specifically reserved for you. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance. If you miss your therapy session, without notifying me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Please note that cancellations must be made by phone. Email cancellations are not accepted.
In Case of Emergency
In the event that you are faced with an emergency, please call 911 or go to your local emergency room for immediate attention. Please contact me as soon as you can to inform me of the event.
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. Exceptions include:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person(s), I must notify the police and inform the intended victim, as well as damage to property as required in the State of Connecticut.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
