Client Information

 

Confidentiality & Privacy

 Confidentiality will be reviewed at the start of our counseling relationship. Your privacy and confidentiality during counseling is protected by law, and information you disclose will not be released without your written consent. There are exceptions to this, and at times I am required (mandated) to disclose information. These exceptions include: 

  • Suspected abuse of a child, an elderly adult, or other dependent adult. I am required to report these suspicions immediately to the appropriate authorities.

  • You disclose to me the intent to harm yourself. If this happens, I will do my best to enter into a safety plan with you that includes contacting your support system of family or friends as well as the appropriate authorities. If you refuse a safety plan, appropriate authorities will be notified immediately to ensure your well-being. 

  • You disclose to me your intent to harm another person or that person's property. Should this occur, I am required to notify the intended victim as well as local law enforcement.

Office Policies

  

No Show and Late Cancellation Policy

If you do not show up for your appointment or do not cancel it at least 24 hours in advance, a charge of half your session fee will be requested before scheduling any new appointments. Multiple no shows or late cancellations will result in termination of services.

Appointment Policy

Your appointment time is set aside especially for you. Please be on time. Clients arriving more than 15 minutes after their scheduled time may be asked to re-schedule. If you arrive late, note that your session time will not be extended as that would interfere with the next client's allotted time, and you will be charged the full session fee.

Fees and Payments

Individual Adult or Adolescent (14 years or older) - $75 per 45 minute session.

Couple - $100 per 45 minute session.

Telehealth Video Counseling - $75 per 45 minute session, available for established clients only who I feel are a good fit for this type of counseling.

Payment is expected on the day of service by cash, check, or Zelle. *Check return fees will apply, should your check not clear the bank.*

I do not accept insurance at this time. 

Client Forms

Please print and complete these forms prior to your first appointment.
