Welcome To Our Practice

Please fill out the brief intake form to let us know how we can help you. Below is some additional information

Unless otherwise agreed in advance, all fees are due at the time of service. Most of the services we provide are billed on an hourly basis. Please feel free to inquire about charges in advance. We do accept payment from a variety of medical insurance companies. Please click here for more information on insurance coverage.
Our efforts to work with your insurance company do not alter your responsibility for fees. We accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
Appointment changes? Please notify us at least two business days in advance if you must cancel or change your appointment time. (For example, this means that you will need to contact us on Thursday to cancel or change your Monday appointment.) Otherwise you will be charged a $100 fee for missed appointments or late cancellations. Your appointment time is important and failure to show prevents other people from being seen. As a general rule, we do not make reminder calls for appointments, so please hold onto your appointment card to keep track of this information.
All communications between you and your clinician are confidential. The law does, however, specify some exceptions, including interventions when you are in danger, a danger to others, your health is declining, or upon the order of a judge or the Secretary of HHS.
In the interest of quality of care, we will send a summary and recommendations to any professional who has referred you unless you write to us to revoke this permission. If we bill your insurance on your behalf, you agree that we may release any and all information requested by your insurance company. If you write checks or use credit cards protected health information will be released.
Otherwise, no information will be released without your additional written consent. By accepting services at this office you are agreeing also to grant your doctor the privilege of confidentiality. Click here to see the federal law designed to protect patients' privacy ~ HIPPA.
Quality of Care
We are committed to providing the highest quality of care. It is important for you to communicate with your therapist should any concerns arise about your treatment. Your feedback is important!
Legal Expert Services
Please notify us in advance if you plan to seek any legal or other forensic service in this office. Our fees for forensic services are $300/hour with a four (4) hour minimum per day. Health insurance does not cover forensic fees. To avoid ethical dilemmas and to ensure a clear focus on your clinical needs, you must agree not to involve your clinical records, this office, or any of our employees, in any legal issues in which you are a party. Alternatively, we will be happy to refer you to an appropriate practice to meet your legal needs.
