What is your Cancellation Policy?
A 24-hour advance notice is required for canceling individual appointments and 48 hour advance notice if canceling a 2 hour session.

Please be aware that this fee cannot be submitted for reimbursement to any insurance companies and will need to be paid out of pocket by the client.
How often would we meet?
For the best therapeutic results, we recommend meeting once a week for the first few months and then reevaluate our treatment goals and timeline. With that said, each person is unique and everyone’s needs are different. We also understand your challenge of juggling busy schedules! Let’s collaborate and find what works best for you in order to meet your goals while managing your hectic life. We offer evening and weekend appointments to help accommodate your schedule.
