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.
     
MISSED APPOINTMENTS...
  • 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
If I make a mistake and miss your appointment due to a crisis, double booking, or a mistake, I will credit/reimburse you as well - I think that's only fair, as your time is valuable too.

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.
