I can be contacted through the routes indicated below or in the link at the left.
Before scheduling an appointment I usually
speak with people by telephone to answer any questions potential clients
may have about me or my practice, and to gather sufficient information
to ensure that I have the expertise to assist you with your difficulties.
People typically see me once
per week, but less frequently is common and occasionally more frequent
appointments are desired. People sometimes just consult with me about
a difficulty for one or two sessions, most engage in short-term work lasting
10-20 sessions, and some people with more longstanding difficulties or people who want to make more substantial gains in their personal growth engage in longer term therapy.
My sessions are usually one hour (50 minutes in session, 10 minutes allotted for required preparation of session notes and preparation for sessions) but longer appointments are also available.
Appointments can be arranged by referral (family physician, psychiatrist)
or can be made with me directly.
I ask that you cancel appointments with me as soon as you are aware that you need to. If you cancel with 48 hours notice there is no fee. If, for any reason, you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, half of your regular fee will be charged unless another client is able to fill the spot. It is important that I not be in the position of determining how "good" your reason is for cancelling, and split the fee for all late cancellations. The earlier I know, the more likely I will be able to find someone to take the spot, and then there will be no fee charged to you. If you do not call or email to cancel I will assume that you are late for the appointment, wait for you throughout the appointment time, and the full fee will be charged
