Cancellation Policy

Your appointment time is reserved just for you. If you cannot come to your appointment in person, consider a phone session or Teletherapy appointment in lieu of in person. I have found that it often helps clients to understand the reasoning behind charges for late cancellations. As psychotherapists, we can often schedule someone else who needs to get in on an urgent basis. If you cancel an appointment within 24 hours you will not be charged. However, if you cancel with less than 24 hours notice you will be charged the full fee of the session. Illness and last-minute emergencies are discussed on an individual basis.
