You gotta have hope. Without hope life is meaningless. Without hope life is meaning less and less. - Author Unknown

Sessions and Fees

Your first session will be a 60-minute intake. The first session allows time to review your intake forms, answer your questions about therapy, and begin to build the therapeutic relationship. Experience has shown me that often when a client's session is going well it is difficult to end it and pick up at that same point next session, so I offer longer sessions as needed at the client's request. The initial phone consolation is free.

24 hours advanced notice is required for cancellations. The scheduling of an appointment reserves time specifically for you. If a scheduled appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, the full fee will be assessed for the time I have reserved for you. If you do not call or show for your appointment, the full fee will be due at the beginning of the following appointment.
