OTHER SERVICES & RATES Available
Verso Paper, Dickinson Hospital, Fed Ex & some other employers offer some FREE Employee Assistance Program visits, but some only allow you to see a specific provider/therapist - call the # on your insur. card or ask your benefits / H.R. person.
Some exceptions made for charity, non-profit, municipality & church sponsored referrals.
- Regular psychotherapy Visits/Sessions are 38-52 minutes; extended sessions are 53-60 min.), as defined by the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT, which is the standard created by the American Medical Association (AMA).
- I almost always start on time & give you at least 45 minutes (longer if we do extended sessions). I know your time is valuable, & you have other 'places to go & people to see'.
- HOW LONG DOES THERAPY TAKE? Some people attend only a single consultation visit, others many months. Most who continue, attend weekly to bi-weekly (twice a month), but I try to do what works best for YOU. Duration of therapy varies according to your needs and how in depth you wish to address them. For those who have longer-term therapy needs, usually the frequency of visits decreases over time.
- No-Show & Late Cancel Charges: If you are unable to attend an appointment, please call as soon as possible (you can call 24/7) to avoid any charges. If you cancel 24 hours in advance, you will not be charged.
- prevent other needy patients from beings served
- waste an entire clinical hour
- requires time rescheduling, phone calls, texting, documentation
- cost most providers and clinics thousands of dollars each year
I understand it is easy to forget or mix up times, or run into conflicts, and unexpected illnesses and crises arise; this is why most of the full rate is waived (even though the clinic incurs loss for the entire hour). A second missed appointment is more, and missing beyond two visits result in you being charged for the full charge for that session and prepayment status or discharged from treatment.
