CANCELLATION FEES & MISSING APPOINTMENTS
It is important you make it to all your scheduled appointments. When there are missed appointments, it can cause a lapse in care that can inhibit treatment progress and growth.
When you schedule an appointment, that time is now committed to your care. Each day's schedule is carefully planned to ensure adequate time to see clients, plan for sessions, complete reports, make calls, and all the other items that go into providing the best client care. If you don't show up, or don't provide enough cancellation notice, that time could have been scheduled for someone else who may require clinical attention, care or assessment.
Please provide 24 hours notice if you cannot keep your scheduled appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. Cancellation Fees equal the Full Cost of Services as listed above. Insurances do not cover or reimburse the cost associated with a missed session.
INSURANCE & OUT OF NETWORK BENEFITS
Please note that as part of my yearly business review in 2016, I decided to resign from accepting insurance as payment.
If you have a PPO or POS plan, you most likely have what are called Out-Of-Network (OON) benefits. This means your insurance may reimburse you a percentage of any out-of-pocket costs as determined by your plan's coverage. I recommend calling your insurance provider directly to determine what your plan offers in this area- you may be surprised!
If you choose to use your Out-Of-Network benefits, I can electronically submit the required form on your behalf to speed along your reimbursement process.

Some people may prefer to opt out of using their insurance benefits and choose Self-Pay instead. When you use your insurance benefits, they are able to track, view and discuss any progress notes, diagnosis, and/or course of treatment as determined by your insurance provider's contract. For those seeking an extra layer of privacy, or those whose insurance plan does not offer out-of-network benefits, self-pay may be an option to pay for services.

As a reminder, that if you are involved in divorce or custody litigation, I do not make recommendations to the court concerning custody or parenting issues as the court can appoint these types of individuals. However, should you provide my name as a potential witness and I receive a subpoena to make an appearance at a deposition or in trial, you will be financially responsible for my court fee, which is $2,000 per day (or any part thereof) due to my inability to be accessible or available for other clients on those days.
