Currently not accepting new clients
I require 24 hour notice for cancelled appointments. I will do my best to accommodate rescheduling however, I run a small practice with limited flexibility. Appointments cancelled within 24 hours will be charged a $25 late cancellation/ no-show fee.
HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) requires that I establish standard safeguards to protect your information, including electronically communicating with me. Though I have taken care to add additional security measures, e-mail is NOT a confidential form of communication. Please reserve clinical questions for in-person meetings and telephone consultations.
If you are a private pay client, my fee is $150 per 45-55 minute session, and $180 for an initial consultation. Payment is due at the time of service. I will provide you with the necessary paperwork for you to file a claim with your insurance company, if you desire to do so. However, reimbursement from your insurance company is your responsibility. If you are billing through your Carefirst BCBS plan, you are responsible for your co-pay and deductible, if applicable. I accept cash and credit/debit card.
Your information may not be disclosed without your permission. However, as a health professional, I am mandated to protect your welfare and the welfare of others. Therefore, the following scenarios are exempt:
1. Threat of harm to self or others.
2. Suspicion of abuse or neglect of children, elderly, and vulnerable adults.
3. Court mandates.
It is not easy to find a provider. If you have questions about my psychotherapy practice, or even want to simply talk through my approach, we can schedule a free 10 minute telephone consultation.
I recognize that social media is a common and perfectly acceptable way to engage with people from various parts of your life. However, in order to maintain your confidentiality and retain the fidelity and beneficence of the work, I neither friend, follow, nor request to connect with current or former clients on social media. If a current or former client requests a connection via social media, I must decline. If you have further questions or concerns regarding this policy, I encourage you to discuss this matter further with me.
