OFFICE HOURS & teletherapy
All sessions are by appointment only and are fifty minutes long. Therapy is traditionally conducted face-to-face, however phone or Skype sessions may also be arranged when in-person sessions are not possible or if otherwise agreed upon.
Please contact me to inquire about my fee as rates vary based on the service provided and may also be adjusted over time. All fees are due at the time of service, unless otherwise arranged.
I offer a few patient hours at reduced rates for those experiencing financial challenges. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to begin work together but are concerned about the fee. I would be happy to discuss your concerns and consider possible options.
I accept the following insurance:
- Pacific Source
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- MHN/Healthnet (NE office only)
- Moda (NE office only)
Minimum forty-eight hours (48) advance notice is required to cancel or reschedule appointments. If you inform me less than forty-eight hours in advance of planned absences, you will be charged the full fee for those sessions.
CONFIDENTIALITY & PRIVACy
The relationship between a client and a psychotherapist is protected by law and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
Exceptions are rare but include:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, which I am required by law to report 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.
- 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.
Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming.
