Appointments will ordinarily be 45 to 60 minutes in duration for individuals, or 90 minutes for couples and families, once per week at a time we agree on, although some sessions may be more or less

If you miss a session without canceling, or cancel with less than 24 hour notice, you will be required to pay for the session. In addition, you are responsible for coming to your session on time; if you are late, your appointment will still need to end on time.

DOES WHAT WE TALK ABOUT IN THERAPY REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and psychotherapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the therapist's office. Every therapist should provide a written copy of their disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone. This is called "Informed Consent". Sometimes, however, you may want your therapist to share information or give an update to someone on your health care team (medical doctor, attorney, naturopath), but by law you therapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.
State laws and professional ethics require therapist to maintain confidentiality except in the following situations:
Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to authorities, including child protection agencies and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources, or if there is an intent to harm oneself or someone else.
