Terms & Conditions
As a psychotherapy client, you have privileged communication. This means that your relationship with me as my client, all information disclosed in our sessions, and the written records of those sessions are confidential and may not be revealed to anyone without your written permission, except where law requires disclosure. Most of the provisions explaining when the law requires disclosure are described in the enclosed Notice of Privacy Practices.
Payment and Financial Arrangements
My standard fee is $225 for the initial 60 min evaluation session, and $200 per 50-minute individual subsequent session. Prorated fees are offered for extended sessions at the same rate. The fee is to be paid at each session unless other arrangements have been made. If you are late, we will end on time and not run over into the next person’s session. Fees generally adjust for inflation annually; at which time you will be required to sign an updated Consent for Psychotherapy Services form to continue to receive services. Please let me know if any problem arises during the course of therapy regarding your ability to make timely payments and we can discuss alternative arrangements.
Social Media Policy
I do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients on any social networking site (e.g., LinkedIn, etc). I believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. It may also blur the boundaries of our therapeutic relationship. If you have questions about this, please bring them up when we meet and we can talk more about it.
