I require that all cancellations or requests to reschedule an appointment have at least 48 hours advanced notice. If you do not cancel or request a rescheduled appointment at least 48 hours in advance you will be charged the full fee for your appointment. The full fee is the full fee for the session - not your copayment. This is not refundable.
Your appointment time has been reserved just for you. Being late happens at times; however, you are missing important time where we are working on your goals. In order to honor the next person your appointment still must end at the scheduled time, even if you are very late. You are still responsible for the full fee, even if your appointment is shortened due to you being late.
How long your counseling takes depends on what you need. I see some of my clients for just a few sessions and others I see for much longer. Generally, I recommend people plan for at least 10-12 sessions.
Yes, I do. I am a firm believer that the deepest healing comes through Jesus Christ and involving Him in the counseling process can only be beneficial. How we incorporate your faith into counseling will be unique to you. We will discuss how you would like it incorporated and that will determine how interventions or goals are addressed.
No, you do not. While I do believe the deepest healing comes through Jesus Christ, there are many things we can do in counseling that you may find helpful and healing. I will not, at any time, impose my beliefs on you.
