Length of Sessions
I assure you that my services will be rendered in a professional manner consistent with
accepted ethical standards. Sessions are fifty (50) minutes in duration. We will schedule our sessions for our mutual agreement.
If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call to cancel or reschedule at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance.
If I do not receive such advance notice, you may be responsible for paying for part or all of the session that you missed.
Please note that it is impossible to guarantee any specific results regarding your counseling goals. However, together we
will work to achieve the best possible results for you.
If you wish to seek reimbursement for my services from your health insurance company, I will be happy to complete
any forms related to your reimbursement provided by you or your insurance company. Your fee is your responsibility and I will
collect payment at the conclusion of each session unless other fee arrangements are in effect, such as prepaid employer referrals
or referrals from your EAP.
Some health insurance companies will pay me for services rendered or reimburse you for
my services and some will not. Those that do pay me for services rendered or reimburse you usually require that a standard
amount be paid by you before reimburse in allowed, and then usually only a percentage of my fee is reimbursable. You should
contact your insurance company representative to determine whether your insurance company will pay me for services rendered
or reimburse you for my services. If reimbursement is allowed, determine what schedule of payment or reimbursement will be
used. However, please remember that you are responsible and not your insurance company for paying your agreed upon fees.
insurance companies require that I diagnose your mental health condition and indicate that you have an "illness" before they
will agree to pay me for services rendered or reimburse you. In the event that a diagnosis is required, I will inform you
of the diagnosis I plan to render before I submit it to your health insurance company. Any diagnosis made will become a part
of your permanent part of your records.
