Yes, 24 hour cancellation is required in order not to be charged for the full session

What will our first session look like?

Our first session will include us getting to know each other in a warm and comforting environment.  I will begin to understand what has brought you to therapy and collaborate on how we will peel through those issues by prioritizing your concerns. Together we will implement solutions to help you achieve your therapy goals.

What Provisions are you making as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic?

As a result of the ongoing pandemic, all current sessions have been transitioned to teletherapy using HIPPA certified communication platforms. Clients have the option to choose which teletherapy platform is most suitable for their needs.
