WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCY 

    
In case of emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Hospital ERs have psychiatrists on call to provide emergency evaluations and treatment.

  REFERRALS

    Please feel free to ask me any and all questions that might come up for you before, during, or after our sessions. Open communication between me and my clients is extremely important to me because I welcome and rely on referrals, which signify satisfaction and trust in my services.

 

  24-HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY

    In order to be effective, therapy needs to take place on a regular basis, because the process of psychotherapy is a commitment to growth. The best results occur when appointments are consistently scheduled and regularly attended. Therefore, in the event you need to miss a scheduled appointment, rescheduling is much preferred over cancellation.  

    In the event of a cancellation or reschedule, several days or a week notification is requested. Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged a cancellation fee at the price of the therapy hour. You can leave a private, confidential voice mail message for me at any time of day or night at 917-334-6285. 

    I understand that on rare occasions illness for yourself or a child or emergencies necessitate cancellation with less than 24 hour notice.  Sometimes this happens for me as well.  I do not charge for this situation.  I ask that you give me as much notice as possible so that I can offer this appointment time to another client who may be in need of services.


TERMINATION

    I support all termination, for whatever reason. When you are ready to leave, I would like to help you leave me well. In order to initiate a productive departure process, I request that you give me advance notice. A period of several weeks is sufficient, although some long-term clients let me know several months in advance. When leaving is handled this way, it often turns out to be the most productive time in therapy for my clients. But even if you are not able to give me advance notice, I will still do my best to help you leave in a way that feels good to you.
